$120 Million Amazon Deal

In 2019 Phoebe Waller-Bridge signed a lucrative development deal with Amazon Studios. This deal paid her $20 million each year to create and produce new content for the Amazon Prime streaming service. According to insiders who spoke to the Hollywood Reporter in April 2023, Phoebe did not end up producing or creating any shows during the first three years of her development deal (2020, 2021, 2022). And yet, she still re-signed an identical 3-year $60 million extension. So in other words, Phoebe earned $60 million in the first three years to ultimately not produce any output and will earn another $60 million for 2023, 2024 and 2025, for a total of $120 million.

Early Life

Phoebe Mary Waller-Bridge was born on July 14th of 1985 in West London. She was raised in a highly aristocratic family. Her father, Michael Cyprian Waller-Bridge, founded the well-known electric trading platform Tradepoint. Her mother, Theresa Mary, is the daughter of Sir John Edward Longueville Clerke, 12th Baronet, employed by the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers. Her family became landed gentry in Sussex after serving as soldiers and clergymen. Phoebe's father was Cyprian Waller-Bridge, a well-known actor and BBC announcer. She is also descended from Revd Sir Egerton Leigh, 2nd Baronet, and a distant relative of the politician and writer Egerton Leigh.

She was raised in the West London district of Ealing alongside two siblings. Phoebe's parents eventually became divorced, and she attended an all-girls Catholic School. After attending DLD College London, she attended the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and studied acting. She has stated that she was religious during her childhood, but she has since become an atheist.


Phoebe started her career in theatre, gaining her first credits in 2007. During this period, she co-founded her own theatre company called the DryWrite Theatre Company. To this day, she and co-founder Vicky Jones act as co-artistic directors. In 2009, she performed in "Roaring Trade" at the Soho Theatre. That year, she also performed in "Rope" at the Almeida Theatre. In 2011, she performed in the play "Hayfever." In 2012, Phoebe followed up with another role in "Mydidae."

It was at this point that Waller-Bridge wrote the play that would eventually become the sitcom "Fleabag." When the show was produced, she also starred in the series. However, "Fleabag" actually started as a play that was performed at the London Storytelling Festival in 2012. The full version of that play then premiered in 2013 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Over the next few years, Waller-Bridge continued to write plays like "Good. Clean. Fun" while performing new stage productions of "Fleabag" up until 2019.

In 2009, Waller-Bridge turned her attention towards film and television for the first time – mostly guest-starring in TV sitcoms and dramas. In 2011, she booked a role in the film "The Night Watch." In 2013, she appeared in series like "Bad Education" and "Coming Up." In 2014, Phoebe booked another role in the series "Blandings." Recurring roles soon followed over the next few years with series like "The Cafe." This role continued until 2013, and in 2015 she booked another recurring role in "Broadchurch."
