Connie Britton Signs First-Look Pact With Amazon
Connie Britton is embracing her inner-producer.
The Friday Night Lights fan favorite and her Deep Blue production company has signed a first-look deal with Amazon Studios. Under the terms of the pact, the actress will create and develop new projects for the retail giant/streamer.
The news arrives as Britton has pushed farther into producing after the ABC turned CMT drama Nashville and Bravo turned USA Network anthology Dirty John. (Britton starred in and executive produced season one of the anthology and is not expected back for a second, completely new season.)
