New Amazon Original dramatic anthology series Solos, from executive producer and showrunner David Weil (Hunters), will boast a heavyweight A-list cast comprising of Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, Helen Mirren, Uzo Aduba, Nicole Beharie, Anthony Mackie, Dan Stevens and Constance Wu
Solos will launch later in 2021 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories worldwide.
“I am beyond thrilled to be bringing Solos to life alongside this group of artists who I so deeply admire. 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,” commented Weil.
Solos is a seven-part anthology series that explores the deeper meaning of human connection, explored through the lens of the individual. The serues will tell unique character-driven stories – each from a different perspective and moment in time – that illuminate that even during our most seemingly isolated moments, we are all connected through the human experience.
Amazon Studios’ Solos is executive produced by Weil, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Laura Lancaster with Pixie Wespiser serving as a producer. Taylor-Johnson will be directing two episodes and Weil will be making his directorial debut. Additional directors include Zach Braff, of Scrubs fame, and Tiffany Johnson.
