Dan Stevens, Constance Wu, Anthony Mackie, Uzo Aduba and Nicole Beharie have also been cast in the new Amazon anthology series from David Weil.

The seven-part series is set to launch later this year on Amazon Prime Video and is a dramatic and thought-provoking show that explores the deeper meaning of human connection from the lens of the individual.

'Solos' tells character-driven stories – each from a different perspective and moment in time – which show that even during the most seemingly isolated moments, in the most disparate of circumstances, that everyone is connected through the human experience.

Showrunner and executive producer Weil commented: "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."

David is joined by Sam Taylor-Johnson and Laura Lancaster as executive producers, with Pixie Wespsier producing the series.

Weil will be making his directorial debut on the show with Taylor-Johnson helming two episodes. Additional directors include Zach Braff and Tiffany Johnson.
