Amazon Prime Video has a star-studded lineup of originals in May, including one of the most eagerly anticipated series of the year.

That would be “The Underground Railroad” (May 14), a 10-part limited series from Oscar winner Barry Jenkins that’s based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning alt-history novel by Colson Whitehead. It details the flight of Cora (Thuso Mbedu) from a slave plantation in the Antebellum South to freedom in the North, via a literal underground railroad, all the while being chased by a determined bounty hunter.

Also on tap from Amazon’s /zigman2/quotes/210331248/composite AMZN -1.25% streaming service: “Solos” (May 21), a seven-part anthology series about how the human experience connects us all, starring  Anne Hathaway, Nicole Beharie, Helen Mirren, Uzo Aduba, Anthony Mackie, Constance Wu, Dan Stevens and Morgan Freeman.
