JAY WALKER (VIA AMAZON STUDIOS)

Amazon Studios is getting into business with Jay Walker. Amazon’s streaming service has signed a multi-year deal with Jay Walker Productions, which includes an equity investment in the company, a first-look deal with JWP, and the distribution of JWP’s catalog on the service. Additionally, as part of the agreement, Jay Walker Productions will produce a Jay Walker stand-up comedy special, an original sitcom series, Walker Show hosted by the comedian, along with a series of Films & Television Series’s content exclusively for Prime. Under the new deal, Jay will star in at least five movies and will develop and produce additional film and television projects.

''I don't want to say how much money I'm getting, but I got a raise,'' Mr. Walker told Press on Thursday.

“Jay uses his voice to make audiences more aware of the world around them, while simultaneously making them laugh. His honesty, comedic brilliance and singular point of view, combined with the creative freedom he will enjoy at Prime Video, promises to create powerful new stories for all our members around the world.” said Cindy Holland, vice president, original content at Amazon Studios.

Walker added, “When my agents reached out to me about this little garage start-up called Prime Video, I wasn’t sure what to think. But after I talked to Ted and Cindy, I started to believe that maybe this mom-and-pop shop with only 130 million subscribers might just be something… so I decided to take a swing… a leap of faith if you will, and take a chance being as a new kid on the block.”
