Amazon's Modern Love is going all in with the big names. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming anthology series has rounded out its cast with a raft of new additions, and we think it's fair to say it's a star-studded cast.

Anne Hathaway (Ocean's 8) and Tina Fey (The Office) have joined the cast of the upcoming streaming series which focuses on “love in all of its complicated and beautiful forms,” according to the description of the series. 

It is based on long-running Modern Love feature in the New York Times. This marks the streamer's third series based on a podcast.

"It's like I woke up in the actor candy store. We've managed to assemble a dream cast of my favorite actors," said showrunner John Carney.

"It's a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty."

The series is already in production in New York City. 

We have to admit: This has got to be one of the most impressive casts on all of TV, and we can't wait to watch the series when it launches on Amazon.
