LONDON - 20 September, 2021 - Amazon Prime Video today announced a new Italian Amazon Original unscripted series, The Ferragnez - The Series, starring the most famous young couple on the scene: Chiara Ferragni and Fedez. Chiara Ferragni is a digital entrepreneur and fashion icon with over 24 million followers on Instagram, and was crowned number one in the "Most Powerful Influencers in Fashion" list by Forbes. Fedez is a versatile artist with over 60 platinum records and 12 million Instagram followers. Fedez was a contestant on popular Amazon Original series Celebrity Hunted - Caccia all'Uomo Season 1, and the host of the hugely-successful LOL - Chi ride è fuori Season 1. The eight-part series, produced by Banijay Italia for Amazon Studios, will launch exclusively on Prime Video in 240 countries and territories worldwide in December 2021.
The couple, also known as the Ferragnez, have millions of followers on Instagram, with whom they share their important milestones. Now, thanks to the Amazon Original docu-reality series The Ferragnez - The Series, audiences and fans will have exclusive access behind the scenes of their everyday life.
Filmed throughout late 2020 and early 2021, a special and extraordinary time of their lives, the series will give fans insight into the family like never before; from Chiara's second pregnancy to Fedez's first participation in the world famous Sanremo Music Festival; to the birth of their second child, Vittoria; all balanced alongside hectic professional and social lives. This intimate look will sensitively and ironically show the passions, joys, tears, and ambitions of a young couple who are at once extraordinary and completely normal. As Chiara and Fedez open the doors of their home and courageously lay themselves and their relationship bare, audiences will see heartfelt, never-before-seen aspects of their personalities and their life together. The series will also feature their eldest son, little Leone, their parents, Chiara's sisters Valentina and Francesca and their partners, Fedez's grandmother Luciana, and many other people close to the couple, drawing a full family portrait.
"The last year has been full of emotions in both our professional and personal lives," explained Chiara Ferragni and Fedez. "This past year saw the Ambrogino d'Oro award, the Sanremo Music Festival, Vittoria's birth, the start of the pandemic which, like for everyone, is continuing to impact our daily lives. The past year has also allowed us to take the time to work on ourselves as a couple and as a family. It has been a year that we will never forget."
"This new fantastic Italian Amazon Original production is the latest example of our commitment and investment in the Italian creative community," said Georgia Brown, head of European Originals, Amazon Studios. "I am sure The Ferragnez - The Series will entertain Prime Video's audiences in Italy and around the world by offering an unprecedented perspective on this iconic couple."
"The Ferragnez is an authentic, funny, intimate, heartfelt, and entertaining series which offers Prime Video viewers a unique and exclusive look into Chiara, Fedez, and their whole family," explained Nicole Morganti, head of Amazon Originals, Italy. "This series shows the lives of a young couple who share their story without filters, with witty honesty and surprising transparency, to connect deeper with their fans. Packed with twists and turns and with a high production value, The Ferragnez - The Series has all the qualities required to become a moment of great entertainment and pure escapism for fans and those new to the couple alike."
"We are very happy to continue our collaboration with Amazon Prime Video. Following FERRO and Dinner Club, The Ferragnez - The Series, has given us a new and exciting challenge, both from a narrative and productive point of view," added Fabrizio Ievolella, CEO of Banijay Italia. "We are incredibly proud to tell the story of one of the most known Italian families, from a totally new perspective, away from the world of social media. This would not have been possible without Chiara and Federico trusting us, and we thank them for this. They opened the doors to their private lives, sharing it all authentically and without any fear. The couple shared their joys, fears, successes and hardships, showing the audience their true selves."
This series continues the ongoing collaboration the couple have with Amazon Prime Video.
