Reese Witherspoon will star and executive produce a cheerleading world-set comedy series at Amazon’s Prime Video.
The streamer outbids many other outlets for the project, titled All the stars, by issuing orders two seasons, in a row. Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine banner will produce the series, from Aline Brosh McKenna (Crazy ex-girlfriend, devil in brand clothes).
All Stars revolves around a former cheerleader (Witherspoon) who crosses the Atlantic to teach cheerleaders at a school in England.
“I have been looking for a project that carries our Hello Sunshine mission to make women the heroes of their own stories for the younger generation,” Witherspoon said in a statement. “When I saw this story, I knew immediately this idea would do the trick. The idea of watching an American woman come to share the very American cheerleading sport with a group of young women in the UK excites me immensely! I love that this show is filled with real heart, deep joy, and the power of teamwork. I can’t wait to work with the smart, funny, and talented Aline McKenna again to create a truly unique comedic character and with the team at Amazon who have an unparalleled passion for the project. this case.”
More to come.
