Things are going "Good as Hell" for Lizzo. The 32-year-old singer has signed a first-look deal with Amazon Studios, it was announced during Amazon's Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday. Lizzo will develop television projects to exclusively debut on Amazon Prime Video. 

"I'm so excited to partner with the amazing team at Amazon," Lizzo said. "Thank you to Jen Salke and the rest of the team for making this dream come true. I can’t wait to get started and share my vision with the world."
