Amazon Studios has begun development on a project about a group of Indigenous teens entitled Get It. The series is being written and executive produced by Kate Purdy, who created the critically acclaimed series Undone for the streaming network.
Casting for the project is underway now ahead of a potential 2023 start of production. Get It will follow an indigenous teenager as she moves away from her Reservation and into the city and a new school that’s home to a wide array of students from different Indigenous and diverse backgrounds.
Purdy signed an overall deal with Amazon Studios following the success of the first season of Undone in 2019. Purdy has brought on a diverse staff of writers to work on the story including Oglala Lakota writer Aiko Little, Destiny Morgan, Zapoteca-Mixteca writer Salma Perez, Ansel Rodriguez, Addison Valdez, Sabastian Youngblood and Cal Poly Pomona Sociology Assistant Professor Alejandro Zermeno.
