Prime Video has an exciting new series for fans of James Corden.
The streaming service debuted the official trailer and new images for the upcoming darkly comedic drama series Mammals, starring Tony, Emmy, and BAFTA winner James Corden and Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins.
All six episodes of Mammals will premiere on Friday, November 11, exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories around the world.
The official logline reads as follows:
“In the new Original series, revelations and secrets come to light as the complexity of modern marriage and fidelity are exposed.
In a world of 8 billion, what happens after we’ve found “the one?” Can we stay true to the promises we strive to keep when, after all, aren’t we all just Mammals?
Mammals follows the story of Jamie (James Corden), a chef whose world implodes when he discovers shocking secrets about his pregnant wife, Amandine (Melia Kreiling).
Jamie finds himself hunting for answers with the help of his brother-in-law Jeff (Colin Morgan).
Through this hunt, the cracks in Jeff’s marriage to Jamie’s sister Lue (Sally Hawkins) also widen.
Written by two-time Olivier and Tony Award winner Jez Butterworth, Mammals is about the complexities of marriage: there is sadness, grief, tension, love, friendship, betrayal, and a touch of magical realism.
The series is directed by Stephanie Laing (Made for Love, Physical) and produced by Street Hassle, in association with Vertigo Films and Fulwell 73.
The series is undoubtedly a change of pace for Corden, who has mostly starred in comedy roles.
Yes, Mammals has a darkly comedic edge, but it looks like viewers will get to see a different side to the Gavin & Stacey star.
Take a look at the official trailer below.
It is nice that all episodes will be available on day one, so it means that fans can binge the entire show.
