Amazon Prime Video today announced Mammals, a six-part UK Amazon Original comedy-drama series, written by two-time Olivier and Tony Award-winning Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem, The Ferryman, Spectre, Ford v Ferrari) and starring Tony, Emmy and BAFTA Award-winner James Corden (The Late Late Show, Gavin & Stacey), twice Oscar and BAFTA-nominated Sally Hawkins (Paddington, The Shape of Water), Melia Kreiling (Filthy Rich), Colin Morgan (Humans), Henry Lloyd- Hughes (Killing Eve) and Samuel Anderson (Witless).

Filming for the new series starts this month.

Details on the storyline of the new series are being kept a closely guarded secret, however writer Jez Butterworth gives us the following clue – “A good marriage is the most magical thing. In a world of eight billion, you’ve found the one who gets you, ignites your body and soul. Who allows you to grow and flourish. Who gives you the spark, the confidence to become you. You’re also never going to have sex with anyone else, ever, and then you’re going to die, and be dead forever.”
