Former Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hidari Coker has signed an overall development deal to create media for Amazon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"We're very excited to welcome Cheo to the Amazon Studios family," said Vernon Sanders, co-head of TV at Amazon in a statement. "From Notorious to Luke Cage, Cheo is a provocative, revolutionary storyteller, and we're happy he'll be creating those kinds of bold new series exclusively for Prime Video."

"Amazon is the future, and their bespoke, specific approach to building groundbreaking shows offers an amazing opportunity, one that I'm incredibly thankful for," added Coker. "I can't think of a better place to launch the first shows developed under my Seattle-based Fighting 99th Entertainment banner and am excited for people to see what we have in store."

Coker was showrunner for both seasons of Luke Cage, though the show was recently cancelled by Netflix along with Daredevil and Iron Fist.

No projects currently in development were named.
