“I am beyond thrilled to be bringing Solos to life alongside this group of artists who I so deeply admire,” says Weil. “I created this piece with a desire to capture stories about connection, hope and the search for that common hum of humanity that binds us all.”

A product of the lockdown zeitgeist, with Awards potential, Solos promises to ‘explore the deeper meaning of human connection, through the lens of the individual. Expect character-driven stories, each told from a different perspective and moment in time, that illuminate that even during our most seemingly isolated moments, in the most disparate of circumstances, we are all connected through the human experience.’
Solos is executive produced by Weil, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Laura Lancaster with Pixie Wespiser serving as a producer. Taylor-Johnson will be directing two episodes and Weil will be making his directorial debut.
