Under the deal, Gladden will produce, develop and star in a variety of content for the US-based studio.

Gladden, who is a solar contractor from Oregon, USA, rose to prominence as an unsuspecting juror in Jury Duty, which was nominated for several Emmys including outstanding comedy series.

In the show, Gladden is part of a jury with the twist that he doesn’t realise he is the only non-actor. Others in the jury include US actor James Marsden, who plays himself.

“Jury Duty was a remarkable experience for me and one that introduced me to so many creative and inspiring people,” said Gladden.

“I’m now looking forward to utilising those new relationships to develop projects for Amazon MGM Studios.”

Lauren Anderson, head of AVoD, unscripted and targeted programming at Amazon MGM Studios, added: “At the heart of Jury Duty was a story about the power of human kindness, selflessness and empathy.

“Ronald exemplified this in his ability to genuinely connect with everyone around him, no matter their background, celebrity or idiosyncrasies. We’re excited to collaborate with Ronald and create more opportunities to bring joy, positivity and inspiration to Amazon customers.”
