Amy Schumer Lands Massive Book Deal

Amy Schumer’s summer continues to get bigger. Hot off the heels of her Emmy win, Schumer has landed a book deal with Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

The deal is worth $8 to 10 million, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The memoir, which is currently untitled, will explore Schumer’s childhood, featuring personal and observational stories that range from raunchy to romantic, heartfelt to harrowing.

“I am thrilled to be working with Gallery. Believe it or not, there’s actually more I have to say,” Schumer said in a press release.

Bergstrom has acquired U.S., Canada, Open Market and audio rights from David Kuhn at Kuhn Projects. The book will be released in late 2016.

In addition to starring in both properties, Schumer co-writes her Comedy Central sketch show, “Inside Amy Schumer,” which earned her an Emmy on Sunday, and wrote the screenplay for her film “Trainwreck.” The movie has hauled $137.7 million worldwide. She’s also penning a screenplay for a comedic movie with Jennifer Lawrence.

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham are some other comediennes and TV stars who landed huge deals for books that went on to become best-sellers.
