As part of the new agreement between Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Amazon, Waller-Bridge is teaming with author Claudia Lux to adapt her book ‘Sign Here‘ as an Amazon series. The new deal is for another three years — similar to her first pact she inked with Amazon in September 2019. This agreement came following steep competition for the multiple Emmy-winning writer, producer and star. Financial terms of the deal were not revealed, though Hollywood insiders note the pact is worth in the mid-eight-figure range. Amazon has not released any information to confirm the figure.

The upcoming Sign Here, project is described as “a darkly humorous, utterly gripping debut novel about a guy who works in Hell (literally). Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work, the coffee machine has been out of order for a century and the only drink on offer is Jägermeister, but it’s still Hell and after waiting a millennium, he comes up with a plan that might just change his life (and death) forever.”

Currrent details about the development of the project include, author Lux is set to pen the script and co-executive produce the potential series. Waller-Bridge and Jenny Robins of Wells Street Films will serve as non-writing exec producers.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge next stars opposite Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones 5.
