Emmy award-winning Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is allegedly working with Amazon to create a new TV series based on the game series.

The details:

  • Sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that Waller-Bridge will write for the show and serve as an executive producer, but will not star in the series. This information follows a report that Waller-Bridge renewed her deal with Amazon for another three years, with her serving as an executive producer for an adaptation of the novel "Sign Here" for the e-commerce giant.
  • Former Amazon Studios head of comedy and drama Ryan Andolina, former Amazon Studios head of overall deals Amanda Greenblatt, and dj2's Dmitri M. Johnson will also executive produce the show. Andolina and Greenblatt left Amazon Studios in late 2022, but they have since established their own production company and signed a deal with Amazon.
  • This report comes just a month after Amazon announced that it would publish the new major entry into the Tomb Raider videogame franchise. The new single-player title is being developed by Crystal Dynamics using Unreal Engine 5 and is currently in early development. Amazon claims in the news post that it will be the "biggest, most expansive Tomb Raider game to date."
  • The show is still in the development stage, and there is minimal information available, such as who will play Lara Croft and what the plot will be.
