Tyler Perry’s collaboration with Amazon Studios was announced in November 2022, and all four movies under the deal will be exclusively released on Prime Video. Prior to his partnership with Amazon, Tyler Perry had been working closely with Netflix, where he recently released the period drama “A Jazzman’s Blues.” He also launched the 12th installment of the popular “Madea” film franchise, titled “A Madea Homecoming,” on the streaming platform. Perry had previously established a first-look features deal with Lionsgate, which produced “A Madea Family Funeral” in 2019, grossing an impressive $75.8 million worldwide.

In addition to his success in film, Perry has also made a significant impact on television. He has a longstanding television partnership with Viacom and was responsible for eight series that aired in 2022, including notable shows like “The Oval,” “Assisted Living,” and “Sistas.”

While Tyler Perry’s collaboration with Amazon Studios marks an exciting new chapter in his career, it does not mean exclusivity with the streaming giant. Perry is currently directing “Six Triple Eight,” a WWII drama featuring Kerry Washington and Oprah Winfrey, and he is also working on the thriller “Mea Culpa,” starring Kelly Rowland, for Netflix.
