Life imitates art, so this story was bound to happen sooner or later. Freeform has released the first trailer for its new mini series, Love in the Time of Corona!
Freeform’s new mini series was remotely-filmed in four parts using the actors real life homes and weaves together different stories about the search for human connection, sex, and love during a global pandemic quarantine. It follows four sets of characters in the early days of the stay-at-home order through the events that reignited the recent worldwide Black Lives Matter movement.
Watch the trailer below:
Freeform announced that the episodes will follow James (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Sade (Nicolette Robinson), a married couple who have been living somewhat separate lives and are forced back under the same roof after the pandemic puts James’ work travel to a halt. With headlines mounting, they begin to reevaluate their family’s priorities. Meanwhile roommates Oscar (Tommy Dorfman) and Elle’s (Rainey Qualley) mostly platonic friendship becomes increasingly complicated with the uncertainty of the pandemic as they wonder if they can find love under one roof. Paul (Gil Bellows) and Sarah (Rya Kihlstedt) put up a “happy couple” facade for their daughter Sophie’s (Ava Bellows) sake when the pandemic sends her home from college, although unbeknownst to her, they have separated. And Nanda (L. Scott Caldwell), a headstrong woman whose husband is unable to return home from his rehab facility, is determined to celebrate her 50th wedding anniversary.
Love in the Time of Corona will premiere as a special two-night limited event on Saturday, August 22 and Sunday, August 23 on Freeform with the episodes streaming the following day on Hulu.
