The Irish ACTRESS, WRITER and PRODUCER has signed a two-year deal with AMAZON STUDIOS


Blue January? Not for Sharon Horgan, the BAFTA-winning actress, writer and producer. In addition to her just-announced personal two-year deal with Amazon, Merman, the production company she co-founded with Clelia Mountford, has also sealed a first-look deal with the streaming giant.

“Sharon Horgan is one of the sharpest and most engaging actresses, writers, and directors working in television today. We are thrilled she is expanding her collaboration with us at Amazon to create new ground-breaking content,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios.

Horgan and Mountford released a joint statement, saying: “Amazon is at the forefront of ground-breaking television and Merman is delighted to be part of their remit to create unique content. The team at Amazon have supported us since the inception of Catastrophe and we are thrilled to be working together. Also, all the free books and stuff is great.”

Horgan’s recent writing credits include HBO’s Divorce, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, the BBC sitcom Motherland, and Catastrophe, with Rob Delaney.
