The writer, who also served as a showrunner on Doctor Who, and producer Sue Vertue are developing “creepy” drama The Devil’s Hour for the streaming service.
Written by Tom Moran, the six-part series tells the story of Lucy Chambers, a single mother who has terrifying visions every night and finds herself connected to a string of seemingly related murders.
Director of European Amazon originals Georgia Brown said: “The Devil’s Hour is a gripping story from an exciting new voice, with a dream team behind and in front of the camera.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Tom, Steven and Sue on this new project, and we can’t wait to share news of the great British talent set to feature in this series.”
It is one of the first British shows commissioned by Amazon, with filming expected to begin later this year.
Moffat and Vertue, who are married, first worked together on a Doctor Who special in 1999. They later teamed up for Sherlock, as well as the BBC’s 2020 adaptation of Dracula.
