Amazon Orders ‘Modern Love’ Comedy Anthology Series

Eight Episodes Have Been Ordered

Amazon Studios has given a straight-to-series order to “Modern Love,” which is a half-hour romantic comedy anthology series based on the New York Times column about love and human connection. John Carney (“Begin Again,” “Sing Street”) is set to write, direct, and produce the series in a collaboration between Storied Media Group and the New York Times.

The first season of “Modern Love” will consist of eight standalone episodes, all taking place over the course of one day. Each episode will highlight a different form of love, not just romance.

“Since its launch 14 years ago, Modern Love has struck a chord with readers that has only deepened with time,” said Sam Dolnick, assistant managing editor at The New York Times. “It remains one of our most popular columns both online and in print; it has become a successful weekly podcast; and the first Modern Love events last year were hits with live audiences. And now we are thrilled that Modern Love will become a TV show on Amazon.”
