Priyanka Chopra Jonas has made all of us proud with her achievements in international waters. She has always tried to be a part of films and television shows that represent Indians and our culture well and we have received a lot of praise and admiration all these years. Okay, it seems that she is ready to create such content herself as she has gone and signed a multi-year first TV deal with Amazon Studios.
Reported exclusively by Variety, Priyanka took to her Instagram to share the article and announced the news. She recalls that when she was a teenager, she would watch TV and think about how things were. But, if she sees some representation of her own in popular culture, she thinks she will be more confident. And of course, she wants to collaborate with her production house Purple Pebble Pictures, this two-year-old Amazon, where they are ready to develop both scripted and unscripted digital content in various genres.

YESSSS @amazonstudios, LET’S 👏GET 👏 IT!!! So honored and excited to finally share this news with you. Looking ahead, we already have so much on our slate! Big thank you to @jsalke and her team at Amazon for being such great partners, and for sharing in the belief that talent and good content knows no boundaries. As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography. This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon. And as a storyteller, my quest is to constantly push myself to explore new ideas that not only entertain, but most importantly, open minds and perspectives. Looking back on my 20 year career, nearly 60 films later, I hope that I’m on my way to achieving that. Thank you to all of you who have been a big part of my journey so far. And for those who are just getting to know me, or maybe only recognize me as Alex Parrish from Quantico, I’m excited for you to get to know me better. @purplepebblepictures @variety @marcmalkin
