Speaking about the quality of the ‘Modern Love’ cast, Carney told Deadline:

“It’s like I woke up in the actor candy store. We’ve managed to assemble a dream cast of my favourite actors. It’s a testament to the reach of the original column and of how, now more than ever, love is the only certainty.”

‘Modern Love’ will be executive produced by Todd Hoffman and John Carney with Trish Hoffman serving as producer. Choire Sicha and Sam Dolnick of The New York Times will also executive produce with Modern Love column editor Daniel Jones serving as consulting producer.
