Donald Glover has reportedly left the Disney-owned FX for Amazon Studios.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the 37-year-old multi-hyphenate has secured an eight-figure, multi-year deal with the streaming giant. The pact is said to include a Prime Video channel that will highlight Glover’s work as well as other curated content. Glover is expected to executive produce a number of projects under the deal. Though he and Amazon Studios have yet to confirm details, insiders say Glover will produce a potential series called Hive, which will center on a “Beyoncé-like” figure. Former first daughter Malia Obama has reportedly joined the writers room for the series from writer Janine Nabers (Watchmen).

The news comes on the heels of Glover and Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge announcing they were creating a Mr. and Mrs. Smith TV series for Amazon Prime Video. The duo will not only executive produce the project, they will also star in it.
