Neil Gaiman has signed an exclusivity deal with Amazon Studios.

The "Good Omens" creator will work exclusively with the streaming giant on new TV series, which will premiere in over 200 countries and territories on the Amazon Prime Video series and is "thrilled" with the agreement.

He said: "What decided me was how much I enjoyed working with the Amazon team on "Good Omens".

"They are smart, gloriously enthusiastic people, who weren't afraid of "Good Omens" being different but who were as determined as I was to make something as unique and exciting as it is.

"I'm thrilled to know that I'll have a home at Amazon in the future where I can make television that nobody's seen before, that's quite unlike "Good Omens", but just as unusual and just as much fun."
