As we know, Netflix recently cancelled Marvel’s Luke Cage. Well, show runner Cheo Hodari Coker has signed an overall deal with rival streamer Amazon.
Included in the deal, Coker will develop and produce new TV projects for Amazon, who is Netflix’s competitor. It will be under his Fighting 99th Entertainment banner. Amazon will distribute the content globally in more than 200 countries.
Vernon Sanders, co-head of TV at Amazon, said Thursday in a statement, "We're very excited to welcome Cheo to the Amazon Studios family, From Notorious to Luke Cage, Cheo is a provocative, revolutionary storyteller, and we're happy he'll be creating those kinds of bold new series exclusively for Prime Video."
