Quarantine-inspired TV shows are popping up everywhere right now, so it goes without saying that Netflix has one on the way. Social Distance will premiere on this streaming service in two weeks, and the first trailer is finally here.
The eight-part anthology series was conceived and executed entirely remotely during the quarantine. Its cast mostly consists of actors who starred in some of Netflix’s previous projects and their family members who made it possible for this show to be shot remotely.
The official logline describes Social Distance as the show that “showcases the power of the human spirit in the face of uncertainty and isolation.” Each of its episodes will be told through a virtual lens, and they’ll offer both “dark and funny takes on how people strive to stay connected while staying apart.”
The cast of this show includes Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Oscar Nunez (The Office), Asante Blackk (When They See Us), and many more. Its Netflix release date is set for October 15th.
