Uzo Aduba to star in Amazon series
Award-winning Nigerian-American actress Uzo Aduba is to star in Amazon Prime’s forthcoming series Solos alongside Oscar-winning actors Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway and Helen Mirren.
The seven-part series will launch on the global streamer later this year in more than 240 territories.
David Weil (Hunters) will serve as showrunner and executive producer on the show, alongside exec producers Sam Taylor-Johnson and Laura Lancaster. Pixie Wespiser will produce the series.
Taylor-Johnson will also direct two episodes, with additional directors including Zach Braff, Tiffany Johnson and Weil.
Other cast members include Nicole Beharie, Anthony Mackie, Dan Stevens and Constance Wu.
Solos will tell character-driven stories from different perspectives and moments in time to explore human connection.
Weil said: “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.”
