Prime Video and MGM+ will team up with Sony Pictures to be the home of Spider-Man streaming shows. Sony control the rights to Marvel’s Spider-Man, and including 900 related characters, and had been look for a partner to bring them to television.
The first show out of the gate will be ‘Silk: Spider Society’, which has been in the works for some time, which has Angela Kang as showrunner. All the shows that are produced will be overseen by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who produced ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’, alongside longtime Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal.
‘Silk: Spider Society’ is based on characters created by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos and inspired by the Marvel comics. It follows Cindy Moon, a Korean-American woman bitten by the same spider that bit Peter Parker, as she escapes imprisonment and searches for her missing family on her way to becoming the superhero known as Silk.
Amy Pascal, Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Sony’s recent live-action and animated reimagining of the Spider-Man franchise has represented some of the most dynamic superhero storytelling in film. Together with Angela Kang’s creative vision, we couldn’t be more pleased to bring Silk: Spider Society to our MGM+ and Prime Video customers.Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios
