·1-min read

Los Angeles, Jul 14 (PTI) Oscar-nominated star Sally Hawkins and actor-comedian James Corden are set to feature in the comedy series 'Mammals' for Amazon Studios.

The six-episode series hails from 'Spectre' co-writer and 'Britannia' co-creator Jez Butterworth, reported Deadline.

The cast also includes Melia Kreiling, Colin Morgan, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Samuel Anderson.

Butterworth, who also wrote the Sean Penn-directed 'Flag Day', teased that the film will deal with the challenges of marriage.

'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,' the writer said.

James Richardson is the co-creator of the series, which will be produced by Street Hassle and Corden’s Fulwell 73 for Amazon.

Stephanie Laing, who helmed 'Made For Love' and 'Physical', will direct the series and also serve as co-executive producer on the show. PTI RB RDS RDS
