This film marks the first of Murphy’s three-picture deal and first-look film agreement with Amazon Studios, cementing their partnership and continued collaboration.

The deal with Amazon Studios comes on the heels of the success of Coming 2 America.  The sequel moved from Paramount to Amazon during the pandemic and became the most streamed movie during its opening weekend. It also held the title of the biggest streaming film opening weekend in 2021. The film resonated particularly well with Black audiences, becoming the top streamed movie among that demographic, according to Nielsen.

The production of ‘Candy Cane Lane’ brings together an impressive team. Murphy produces alongside Imagine’s Brian Grazer, president of features Karen Lunder, and Charisse Hewitt-Webster. This collaboration marks a reunion of the team behind the 1992 hit ‘Boomerang.’ As well as it solidifies the seventh partnership between Grazer and Murphy.
