The ‘Riverdale’ actress and her partners at Small Victory Productions will develop original and adapted content for television and feature film that explore the complexities of young adulthood.
AceShowbiz -“Riverdale” star Lili Reinhart has landed a major new first-look television and feature film deal with Amazon Studios bosses.
The actress and her partners at Small Victory Productions will develop original and adapted content, which celebrates diversity and inclusivity, for young adults.
Announcing the news on Monday, June 7, Amazon’s head of studios Jennifer Salke said, “Following the success of the emotional and poignant (2020 project) ‘Chemical Hearts‘, we’re so thrilled to continue our working partnership with Lili, as we welcome her back into the Amazon family.”
“Lili’s on-screen charisma, as well as her passion for dynamic storytelling, brings a refreshing perspective to the young adult genre, and we can’t wait for our global audiences to see what we have in store.”
Reinhart told Deadline, “I had such a great experience producing ‘Chemical Hearts’ with Amazon and am looking forward to expanding our relationship. Small Victory Productions will tell stories that explore the complexities of young adulthood – queer, diverse and inclusive of everyone.”
Equally excited was Reinhart’s producing partner Catherine Hagedorn at Small Victory. “I couldn’t be happier to join Small Victory. Lili is one of the most forward-thinking and creative women working in entertainment today. We are beyond thrilled to establish this partnership with Amazon Studios,” she said.
This Amazon deal came weeks after Reinhart reflected on her 11-year of “exhausting” battle with depression. “Some days I feel really defeated by my depression,” she wrote in an Instagram Story post. “It’s an exhausting battle that I’ve been fighting for 11 years and some days, like today, it can feel intolerable.”
Urging other to take care of themselves, the “Hustlers” actress noted, “This is a reminder to my fellow warriors that it’s okay to have days where you don’t want to fight anymore.” She added, “Prioritize yourself when needed, take time to rest.”
