After three Emmy wins on Sunday, “Fleabag” creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has signed a deal to create content for Amazon Prime.

Amazon Studios announced the deal Tuesday. There’s no word on financial terms but it is reportedly worth around $20 million a year, according to CNN.

The second season of “Fleabag” was co-produced with Amazon Studios, and its win beat out “Veep,” preventing Julia Louis-Dreyfus from winning her seventh Emmy. The show won a total of six Emmys for its second season, according to Indie Wire.

“I’m insanely excited to be continuing my relationship with Amazon,” Waller-Bridge said in a statement. “Working with the team on ‘Fleabag’ was a creative partnership dreams are made of. It really feels like home. I can’t wait to get going!”

Amazon Studios also released a statement praising Waller-Bridge and declaring their excitement over the deal.

“We are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Phoebe at Amazon Studios! As evident in her great success at the Emmy Awards this week, she is clever, brilliant, generous and a virtuoso on multiple fronts including writing, acting and producing,” Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke said in a statement on Tuesday.

Waller-Bridge also created the award-winning “Killing Eve” and did voice work as droid L3-37 in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” She is also currently helping to rewrite the script for upcoming James Bond film, “No Time to Die.”
