Priyanka Chopra Jonas has made us all proud of her achievements in international waters. She has always been one to try and be part of films and television shows that represent Indians and our culture well, and has brought us great praise and accolades in all these years. Well, seems like she’s all set to create such content herself as she has gone on and signed on a multi-year first look TV deal with Amazon Studios.
Reported exclusively by Variety, PC took to her Instagram to share the article and announced this news. She recalls how when she was a teenager, she would watch TV and think that was how things were. But, if she saw some representation of her own in popular culture, she thinks she would have been more confident. And that’s exactly what she, with her production house, Purple Pebble Pictures, aims to do in this two-year collaboration with Amazon where they are set to develop both scripted and unscripted digital content across various genres.

YESSSS @amazonstudios, LET’S 👏GET 👏 IT!!! So honored and excited to finally share this news with you. Looking ahead, we already have so much on our slate! Big thank you to @jsalke and her team at Amazon for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries. As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography. This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon. And as a storyteller, my quest is to constantly push myself to explore new ideas that not only entertain, but most importantly, open minds and perspectives. Looking back on my 20 year career, nearly 60 films later, I hope that I’m on my way to achieving that. Thank you to all of you who have been a big part of my journey so far. And for those who are just getting to know me, or maybe only recognize me as Alex Parrish from Quantico, I’m excited for you to get to know me better. @purplepebblepictures @variety @marcmalkin
