Amazon Prime Video has ordered Solos, a dramatic anthology series from executive producer and showrunner David Weil, with a star-studded cast that includes Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren.
Sam Taylor-Johnson and Laura Lancaster will exec produce alongside Weil for Amazon Studios, with Pixie Wespiser serving as a producer. Taylor-Johnson will also be directing two episodes and Weil will be making his directorial debut. Additional directors include Zach Braff and Tiffany Johnson.
Anne Hathaway, Uzo Aduba, Nicole Beharie, Anthony Mackie, Dan Stevens and Constance Wu will also star in the seven-part Amazon Original that will explore “the deeper meaning of human connection” through the lens of individual character-driven stories.
Each story will be told from a different perspective and moment in time and will “illuminate that even during our most seemingly isolated moments, in the most disparate of circumstances, we are all connected through the human experience.”
“I am beyond thrilled to be bringing Solos to life alongside this group of artists who I so deeply admire,” commented 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 Jennifer Salke and my incredible partners at Amazon for their unwavering support and collaboration on this special project.”
