Amazon Lands Star-Studded Cast for 'Solos' Anthology
Amazon has assembled an A-list cast for its latest anthology series.
Uzo Aduba, Nicole Beharie, Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, Anthony Mackie, Helen Mirren, Dan Stevens and Constance Wu will star in Solos, a drama from Hunters creator David Weil and Amazon Studios. The seven-part series, set to premiere later this year, will explore the deeper meaning of human connection through the lens of the individual.
"I am beyond thrilled to be bringing Solos to life alongside this group of artists who I so deeply admire," said Weil. "I created this piece with a desire to capture stories about connection, hope and the search for that common hum of humanity that binds us all. I’m immensely grateful to [Amazon Studios head] Jennifer Salke and my incredible partners at Amazon for their unwavering support and collaboration on this special project."
Solos will tell character-driven stories set at different moments in time, and aims to showcase that during people's most isolated moments, and in disparate circumstances, the human experience connects everyone.
Weil, who has an overall deal at Amazon, will serve as showrunner and executive produce with Sam Taylor-Johnson and Laura Lancaster. Pixie Wespiser serves as producer. Taylor-Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) will direct two episodes; Weil, Zach Braff and Tiffany Johnson are also set to direct.
