To All The Boys I’ve Ever Loved Before author Jenny Han has inked to a overall film and television agreement with Amazon Studios.

The announcement comes as Jenny Han is in the process of transforming her teen romance novel “The Summer I Turned Pretty” for the streaming service. She is the co-showrunner and executive producer of the series adaption. All future projects produced under the agreement will be handled by Han’s new production firm, Jenny Kissed Me. The author gave a statement,

Adapting my novel, ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty,’ into a television series at Prime Video has been an incredible experience, and I’m so thrilled to now expand my relationship with them. I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can remember, first on the page, then onscreen, and now I’m delighted to start this new chapter: creating and championing stories about coming of age at every age for Prime Video’s global audience.

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios stated that she is excited about the deal,

Not only is Jenny Han a beloved and best-selling author, but she has also brought her voice to screens around the world, speaking to her fans with an authentic voice that inspires, moves and entertains her huge and growing fan base. We are so excited to now be the home for Jenny and her fantastic work to come. I know our global prime audience will thank us.

The first novel in the “Summer” series was released in 2009. In 2010, and 2011, the sequels “It’s Not Summer Without You” and “We’ll Always Have Summer” were released. In addition to those three works, Jenny Han is well-known for authoring the “To All the Boys” series, which has been made into a series of blockbuster Netflix films. Her first television writing credit will be for the Amazon series.

We’re quite excited about her new projects!
