The Fifty Shades of Grey star is set to star in and executive produce a mockumentary-style comedy series in the works at Amazon.
Rodeo Queens will follow a group of Rodeo Queen hopefuls competing for a crown. A writer’s room will soon be open, with a full series order expected to follow.
The series will be Johnson’s return to television—she starred on Fox’s Ben and Kate before moving onto film roles including the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, The Peanut Butter Falcon, Bad Times at the El Royale, and Black Mass. Currently, she can be seen co-starring with Tracee Ellis Ross in The High Note.
Cristy Hall, who co-created Netflix’s I Am Not Okay With This, created the series and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Carrie Brownstein, known for co-creating, starring in, and directing Portlandia, will executive produce and direct.
