“Succession” star Sarah Snook will topline the premiere episode of AMC’s untitled episodic anthology series from Brett Goldstein and “Black Mirror” writer Will Bridges.

The series is centered on the intersection of love and science. Per AMC, it takes place 15 years from now, when science makes a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet — a way to find your soul mate. The series uses the sci-fi conceit to tell six provocative stories about the cost of finding true love, all different in tone and featuring a spectrum of people and relationships.

Each episode will feature an entirely new story and different cast, a first-time format for AMC.

In the Rob Savage-directed premiere episode, Snook plays Nikki, a suburbanite mother tortured by the growing suspicion that her life’s happiness lies with her soulmate and not with her husband of fifteen years. The second episode stars Costabile as David, a charming and well-respected Ivy League professor whose world is turned upside down when his soulmate, Allison, walks into his life unexpectedly, along with Cassidy who plays Allison.

Additional cast includes Kingsley Ben-Adir (“The OA”), Darren Boyd (“Killing Eve”), Dolly Wells (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”), Karima McAdams (“Deep State”), Laia Costa (“Victoria”), Shamier Anderson (“Goliath”), Georgina Campbell (“Black Mirror”), Henry Goodman (“The New Pope”), Sofia Oxenham (“Poldark”), Nathan Stewart Jarrett (“Candyman”), Sandra Teles (“Black Mirror: Bandersnatch”), Letty Thomas (“Emma”), and Adam El Hagar (“Tyrant”).

Bridges and Goldstein previously created the short film “For Life,” which serves as the basis for this new, original series. 

Bridges and Goldstein will executive produce with Jolyon Symonds through Fearless Minds, a Banijay Group company. The Untitled Bridges/Goldstein Project, produced by AMC Studios, will consist of six, hour-long episodes, and is slated for a 2020 debut on AMC.
