Mammals cast: who stars in Amazon series with James Corden, Melia Kreiling, Colin Morgan, and Sally Hawkins?

Amazon Prime comedy drama series stars James Corden as a successful chef whose life unravels when secrets about his wife come to light

Mammals is the latest offering from streaming platform Amazon Prime Video - the dark comedy drama explores a marriage on the brink when a husband learns his wife’s secrets. The series is the creation of Bronson and The Football Factory producer James Richardson and sees comedy actor James Corden in the lead role.

It is perhaps ironic that Corden plays a star chef in his latest series, as only last month he was called out by restaurateur Keith McNally for his alleged rude behaviour to the staff at a New York venue Balthazar, for which Corden later apologised. It’s fair to say that Corden’s public image has taken a hammering in recent months, and it remains to be seen if Mammals will help to rehabilitate him.
