We'll soon get to see those stories unfold in reel time as Amazon is set to launch an eight-episode series based on some of its most popular essays about human connection.

Each episode will be 30 minutes long and "will explore love in its many forms—sexual, romantic, familial, platonic and self-love included", says a press release.

Variety reports that the cast for the Modern Love series features some A-listers such as Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Dev Patel, Andy Garcia and John Slatterly.

Modern Love will also feature some heavy-hitters behind the camera, with John Carney (Once), Emmy Rossum (Shameless), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) and Tom Hall (Sensation) all slated to direct individual episodes.

Its release date is not yet known.
