Amazon Studios has set the A-list cast for “Modern Love,” its upcoming anthology series based on the popular New York Times column and weekly podcast.

The lineup includes: Anne Hathaway (“Ocean’s Eight”), Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), John Slattery (“Mad Men”), Dev Patel (“Lion”), Catherine Keener (“Get Out”), Andy Garcia (“Ocean’s Eleven”), Cristin Milioti (“Black Mirror”), 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 John Gallagher, Jr. (“The Newsroom”).

The series, created by filmmaker John Carney and produced by Storied Media Group and The New York Times, will consist of half-hour episodes that “explore love in all of its complicated and beautiful forms.”

In behind-the-camera news, “Shameless” star Emmy Rossum, Sharon Horgan (“Catastrophe,” “Divorce”) and Tom Hall (“Sensation”) will all direct episodes of the anthology series. Horgan will write and direct the Fey-Slattery installment episode with Rossum directing an episode written by the late Audrey Wells (“Under the Tuscan Sun,” “The Hate U Give”). Hall will direct an episode he penned himself.

“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 Carney, “Modern Love’s” writer, director and executive producer.

Todd Hoffman will executive produce the series, alongside Carney. Trish Hofmann serves as producer, with Sam Dolnick and Choire Sicha of The New York Times executive producing. “Modern Love” column editor Daniel Jones will act as consulting producer.

“Modern Love” is currently in production in New York.
