Amazon has announced a rather stellar ensemble cast for its upcoming anthology series adaptation of the New York Times podcast and column Modern Love.

“It’s like I woke up in the actor candy store. We’ve managed to assemble a dream cast of my favorite actors,” said showrunner John Carney (Once, Sing Street) via THR. “It’s a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty.”
In addition to the cast, it has also been announced that Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Emmy Rossum (Shameless) and Tom Hall (Sensation) have signed on to direct episodes.
