Donald Glover Leaves FX For Eight-Figure Deal With Amazon Studios


Donald Glover has reportedly signed an eight-figure, multi-year deal with Amazon Studios.

The multi-talented star is said to have left Disney-owned FX - home to his critically-acclaimed series "Atlanta" - for the new deal, with one of his first projects for Amazon being "Hive", a series from "Watchmen" 's Janine Nabers about a Beyonce-like figure.


According to Variety, Malia Obama - the daughter of former U.S. president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle - has joined the writers' room for that project.

Glover's brother Stephen has also inked a deal with Amazon Studios, multiple outlets reported, while Amazon declined to comment on the news.
