Amazon Studios signs deal with “The Handmaid’s Tale” director Reed Morano

Amazon Studios has signed an overall TV deal with Emmy-winning director of “The Handmaid’s Tale” Reed Morano. She will create original content for Amazon Prime Video.
Morano directed the first three episodes of Hulu’s series. She became the first woman to win an Emmy for drama series directing in 22 years, and also was the first woman ever to win the Emmy and DGA Award for drama series in the same year.
“Reed is a creative powerhouse whose distinct point of view shines through her immersive, emotional storytelling and commanding cinematic style,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said Wednesday in a statement. “We’re honored to partner with her to exclusively create originals for the global Prime Video audience.”
Morano made her directorial debut with the movie “Meadowland” in 2015. Her latest film is “I Think We’re Alone Now,” starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning.
