Ramy Youssef Signs First Look Deal and Gets Adult Animated Series at Amazon

While Ramy the series isn’t moving forward at Hulu, the show’s namesake, Ramy Youssef, is hardly close from being finished on his end. Announced today, Ramy has inked a first look deal with Amazon to develop and produce projects for one of the biggest companies in the world (and also the place where such amazing boundary pushing shows such as Fleabag and Transparent called home).

Youssef’s very particular brand of dramedy when it comes to TV will be fascinating to see in this first project born from this deal, an adult animated series that will stream exclusively on Amazon Prime. No other details are available at this time for the series, but it’s probably a safe bet that it will be a very personal show that could only come from Ramy’s unique point-of-view being in between worlds of America and desiring to be a more faithful Muslim and would probably only get made on streaming service for the amount of tricky territory that Youssef likes exploring.

Note that this is only the first project from this deal at Amazon and we’re intensely curious to see what else he’s got cooking, which will hopefully be revealed in the not too distant future (maybe when the pandemic truly becomes an endemic).
