Consisting of eight standalone episodes, the half-hour Amazon series will explore love in all of its forms, including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic and self-love.

Modern Love has a star-studded cast with Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel, Tina Fey, Sofia Boutella, Andrew Scott, Catherine Keener, John Slattery, Cristin Millioti, Olivia Cooke, John Gallagher Jr, Julia Garner, Brandon Victor Dixon and Andy Garcia in pivotal roles.
Recently, Hathaway, who plays Terry Cheney, a woman with bipolar disorder in the show spoke about her role. She said that playing the character gave her a heightened compassion for people with mental illnesses who can’t walk away once the cameras stop rolling. She said she hopes telling stories like Cheney’s will open up the conversation surrounding mental illness.
