Amazon Studios has been on an accelerated track developing and scooping up conversation-starting content, and wooing big-name talent both in front of and behind the camera. Coincidence that former NBC exec Salke has been at the helm for a year and a half? We think not. Nicole Kidman, Jordan Peele and Lena Waithe are just a few of the names she’s brought in. Salke is thinking globally, too; she’s considerably increased Amazon’s output of programming from around the world. All of which bodes well for the house of Bezos as it braces for the onslaught of new direct-to-consumer services coming its way.
