Phoebe Waller-Bridge lands massive Amazon deal

"I'm insanely excited to be continuing my relationship with Amazon".

However, showrunner D.B.Weiss addressed the backslash indirectly saying, "It's not really up for us to decide what people feel about it. Hope people watch and like it in the future".

On Sunday, she won the Emmys for best lead actress in a comedy series and best writing for a comedy series, both for Fleabag, which was also named best comedy series. I can't wait to get going!'

Fleabag's season 2 was telecasted beginning of this year by the BBC, while it was presented on Amazon Prime Video in the U.S. It followed Flea's journey for happiness and her chase of "hot reverend" Andrew Scott.

Waller-Bridge and her dark comedy about a dysfunctional woman, which also won a directing award, blocked Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus from setting a record as the most-honored performer in Emmy history. Deadline studies that Waller-Bridge has signed a deal for 3 years, and that curiosity in signing her up had emerged ever since Killing Eve debuted on BBC America in 2018. She admitted that "Fleabag" has been a tremendous success for them and a gift to their Prime Video customers.

The final season of Game of Thrones won 10 awards a week before the Emmys in the Creative Arts Emmys. She will also executive produce Entertainment One romantic comedy thriller Run for HBO, starring Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson.

Fleabag started as a one-woman show at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival before playing in London between 2014 and 2016.

Waller-Bridge had a number of small acting roles in British series, including Sky comedy The Café and features such as The Iron Lady, before she broke through in the second season of ITV crime drama Broadchurch where she played barrister Abby Thompson who becomes suspicious when the defendant she is representing changes his story. Which was a great result for the Phoebe Waller-Bridge hive that dominated the online discussion around the Emmys (we - and I can't stress this enough - stan), but maybe less so for viewers of Fox, where the dominant shows are The Masked Singer and Family Guy.

Is this the year of Phoebe Waller-Bridge?

Fleabag got nominated for 11 awards at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards. The film is dated for an April 2020 release.
