Share on Reddit

Amazon has given a script to series order to an untitled drama project from Kevin Kwan, the author of Crazy Rich Asians, and STXtv television studios per Deadline.

Co-created and co-written by Kwan (in his TV writing debut) and David Sangalli, the drama is a "globe-hopping drama set amongst Hong Kong's most influential and powerful family and the business empire they control."

“This series is precisely the type of East-meets-West material that STX is uniquely positioned to develop across all of our divisions. We are so pleased to be able to partner with Amazon, whose established relationship with Kevin and support of his literary career make them the perfect platform to launch his first TV project,” said Jada Miranda, EVP and Head of Scripted Television at STXtv. “The Crazy Rich Asians trilogy remains one of Amazon’s top fiction best-sellers because millions of passionate fans around the world can’t get enough of Kevin’s exuberant brand of storytelling. We can’t wait to bring the wildly entertaining world he and David created with this series to Prime audiences worldwide.”

“I’m such a fan of Kevin’s writing, and the incredible worlds he brings to light, said Graham. “I can’t wait to start on this adventure with him and David, STX and Amazon to create a truly international show that feels like nothing we’ve ever seen on screen before.”

Crazy Rich Asians, the Warner Brothers adapted feature film starring Constance Wu and Henry Golding releases August 15.

Mozart in the Jungle executive producer Will Graham has come on board to supervise the project via his company Field Trip Productions’s first-look deal at Amazon Studios. The company’s Hailey Wierengo will co-executive produce.
