Fresh off her show's Emmy wins, "Fleabag" creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge signed a deal with Amazon Studios to create and produce new TV content for the tech giant's video platform.

The pact is a coup for Amazon, with Waller-Bridge's "Fleabag" winning four Emmy awards, including for best comedy series, and Waller-Bridge receiving lead actress in a comedy series and writing in a comedy series.

"Fleabag" was boosted by social media, where Internet audiences embraced the look of a stylish jumpsuit that Waller-Bridge wore on the show and made memes of Andrew Scott's Hot Priest character.

"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," said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, in a statement.

Amazon did not disclose the financial terms of the relationship in its press release.

Waller-Bridge said in a statement that she was excited to continue her relationship with Amazon.

"Working with the team on 'Fleabag' was the creative partnership dreams are made of," Waller-Bridge said. "It really feels like home. I can't wait to get going!"

Waller-Bridge has also received critical acclaim for the BBC America TV series "Killing Eve," for which she was the writer and showrunner in its first season.
