A new anthology series is coming to Amazon Prime. According to Shadow and Act, David Weil’s (Moonfall, The Twilight Zone) Solos will premiere sometime later this year. The Hunters showrunner will make his directorial debut with the series that boasts an incredible cast. Read the show’s description below:
Solos is a dramatic and thought-provoking seven-part anthology series that explores the deeper meaning of human connection, as explored through the lens of the individual. Solos 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, in the most disparate of circumstances, we are all connected through the human experience. – via Shadow and Act
According to Shadow and Act, Morgan Freeman (Kiss the Girls, Lean on Me), Anne Hathaway (Interstellar, The Devil Wears Prada), Anthony Mackie (Outside the Wire, She Hate Me), Constance Wu (Crazy Rich Asians, Hustlers), Helen Mirren (The Good Liar, Fast and Furious 9), Uzo Aduba (Miss Virginia, Orange is the New Black), Nicole Beharie (Miss Juneteenth, Black Mirror), and Dan Stevens (Legion, Beauty and the Beast) are set to headline the series.
“I am beyond thrilled to be bringing Solos to life alongside this group of artists who I so deeply admire,” Weil said via Shadow and Act. “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,” Weil said via Shadow and Act.
