Prime Video Orders Legally Blonde Prequel ‘Elle’ From Executive Producer Reese Witherspoon

During Prime Video‘s upfront presentation, Amazon MGM Studios announced that its Legally Blonde prequel series titled, Elle has officially been granted a straight-to-series order. Reese Witherspoon will serve as executive producer through her Hello Sunshine banner. The upcoming series is expected to take place years before the events of the iconic 2001 movie.

“One of the most quotable, iconic, and beloved characters that is ingrained in the fabric of Hollywood history has to be Elle Woods, and we are honored to bring her origin story to our global Prime Video customers,” Amazon MGM Studios executive Vernon Sanders in a statement (via Deadline). “Reese and Hello Sunshine’s vision for this series, coupled with Laura Kittrell’s winning voice, made this show completely undeniable.”

The series will follow Elle Woods in high school, while exploring the life experiences that shaped her into the young woman she’s known as today.

“I truly couldn’t be more excited about this series! Fans will get to know how Elle Woods navigated her world as a teenager with her distinct personality and ingenuity, in ways that only our beloved Elle could do,” Witherspoon said. “What could be better than that?! I’m extremely grateful to the incredible teams at Prime Video and Hello Sunshine – along with our amazing writer Laura Kittrell – for making this dream of mine come true. Legally Blonde is back!”
