EXCLUSIVE: Amazon Studios is adding more projects to its growing slate of original content. I hear they’ve optioned an untitled half-hour dramedy from comedian-writer Jill Soloway. Details are being kept under wraps but the story centers on a family with a few secrets. The Emmy-nominated Soloway executive produced HBO’s Six Feet Under, The United States Of Tara, and How To Make It In America before writing and directing her first feature, Afternoon Delight, which nabbed the directing award at Sundance and will be released by The Film Arcade and Cinedigm. Soloway is repped by UTA.
