Amazon Studios’ adaptation Modern Love, based on the popular New York Times column and weekly podcast, has assembled a stellar cast of actors to appear in the anthology series. From Storied Media Group and The New York Times, each episode of the half-hour series will explore love in all of its complicated and beautiful forms.
Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway (Ocean’s Eight), Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (30 Rock), Emmy Award nominee John Slattery (Mad Men), Academy Award nominee Dev Patel (Lion), Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener (Get Out), Academy Award nominee Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Eleven), Cristin Milioti (Black Mirror), Emmy Award nominee Brandon Victor Dixon (Power), Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One), Andrew Scott (Sherlock), Julia Garner (Ozark), Shea Whigham (Homecoming), Gary Carr (The Deuce, Downton Abbey), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Tony Award winner John Gallagher, Jr. (The Newsroom) are among the stars that will appear in the upcoming series.
“It’s like I woke up in the actor candy store. We’ve managed to assemble a dream cast of my favorite actors. It’s a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty,” said John Carney.
Carney (Once, Sing Street) serves as writer, director and executive producer. Additionally, Emmy Rossum (Shameless), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe, Divorce) and Tom Hall (Sensation) will also direct episodes of the anthology series.
