Freeform released the first trailer for its four-part limited series “Love in the Time of Corona” on Monday for those who aren’t sick of quarantine yet.
The scripted drama, which hails from “Good Trouble” duo Joanna Johnson and Christine Sacani, tells “four interwoven stories about the hopeful search for love and connection during this time of quarantine,” from the early days of social distance through the events that ignited the worldwide Black Lives Matter protests.
The four parts will air across two nights, Aug. 22 and 23 on Freeform.
“Hamilton’s” Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson executive produce and star in the limited series, along with Tommy Dorfman, Rainey Qualley, Gil Bellows, Rya Kihlstedt, Ava Bellows and L. Scott Caldwell. See full episode descriptions below.
“Love in the Time of Corona” was filmed using remote technologies last month in the cast’s homes. Johnson and Sacani serve as executive producers on the series alongside Anonymous Content’s Robyn Meisinger.
