“Tyler Perry is undeniably one of the most prolific creators of our time,” remarked Salke, who serves as head of Amazon Studios. “He is a true multihyphenate who has defined his own incredible brand of storytelling and inspired people all over the world with his series and films. We are excited to collaborate with Tyler and his teams to bring even more of his fantastic signature films to our global audiences.”
Perry’s most recent film, A Jazzman’s Blues — which he wrote, directed and produced — world premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September and was released by Netflix later that month. He also recently wrote, directed and exec produced A Madea Homecoming — the 12th installment in the popular Madea franchise, in which he also stars — and the thriller, A Fall from Grace.
On the television side, Perry has created, directed, and written several series for BET and BET+, including The Oval, Assisted Living, Bruh, Sistas, Zatima and Ruthless.

He is represented by WME and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole.
