Uzo Aduba to Star in New Series from 'Good Wife' Creators!

Uzo Aduba has lined up an exciting new project!

The 40-year-old actress and three-time Emmy winner will star in the new drama series Low Country for CBS Studios.

The new series is written by Dewayne Jones (Evil, Your Honor) and executive produced by The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King. Uzo is also serving as an executive producer and she signed a multi-year producing deal with CBS Studios to produce other projects for the studio, according to Deadline.

In Low Country, Uzo will play “the least likely deputy sheriff in South Carolina’s low country. Black and openly gay in a white southern stronghold, Shirley has been underestimated her whole life until now, when she takes on the wealthy white crime family that has kept everyone in the grip of fear.”

Uzo is also starring in the upcoming HBO reboot of In Treatment and the Amazon anthology series Solos. She won two Emmys for her work in Orange Is the New Black and a third Emmy last year for Mrs. America.

Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, & More to Lead 'Solos' Series for Amazon

Amazon has landed a star-studded cast to lead the upcoming dramatic anthology series Solos.

The new series is being developed by executive producer and showrunner David Weil, who created the show Hunters for Amazon.

Oscar winners Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman, and Helen Mirren are all part of the series, along with Uzo Aduba, Nicole Beharie, Anthony Mackie, Dan Stevens, and Constance Wu.

Solos is a dramatic and thought-provoking seven-part anthology series that explores the deeper meaning of human connection, as explored through the lens of the individual. Solos will tell unique character-driven stories, each 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.

Sam Taylor-Johnson, Zach Braff, Tiffany Johnson, and David Weil will direct episodes.

“I am beyond thrilled to be bringing Solos to life alongside this group of artists who I so deeply admire. 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. I’m immensely grateful to Jennifer Salke and my incredible partners at Amazon for their unwavering support and collaboration on this special project,” Weil said in a statement.

Solos is expected to premiere on Amazon Prime Video later in 2021.
