Russell Wilson, Ciara Sign Deal With Amazon

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara have always sought new challenges. They founded the Why Not You Foundation in 2014 with the mission to fight poverty through education and empower youths to lead. In 2016, the Good Man Brand was formed with the Wilsons leading the charge. They even became part of the Seattle Sounders' ownership group in 2019. Now, it's time for their next adventure.

Wilson and Ciara officially signed a television and film deal with Amazon early this week. The couple will develop and produce scripted series and films with Amazon Studios through Why Not You Productions, which they launched in 2019.

"We're so excited and honored to work with Amazon Studios," Wilson and Ciara said in a statement. "They've quickly become one of the most exciting studios in entertainment and have shown a strong belief in our vision to bring inspiring stories to the world. We can't wait to begin our work together."

"Russell and Ciara are a true powerhouse producing duo -- both with extraordinary success in their respective careers on the field and the stage, their business ventures, and shared dedication to philanthropy," said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. "We share a passion for developing diverse and emotionally connecting stories that can inspire the world and spread positivity and hope. Our world certainly needs it."
