Netflix has dropped the official trailer for Social Distance, its upcoming quarantine anthology series from Orange Is the New Black and Weeds creator Jenji Kohan.
Conceived, cast and executed entirely remotely during quarantine, Social Distance is created and executive-produced by showrunner Hilary Weisman Graham. Set in the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the eight-part anthology series showcases the power of the human spirit in the face of uncertainty and isolation. Each standalone episode is told through a virtual lens and captures the unique emotional experience of being forced apart by circumstance and having no choice but to communicate remotely and rely on technology to maintain any sense of connection. Through these varied and deeply human stories, Social Distance aims to provide some much-needed catharsis during a tumultuous time while also capturing a snapshot of this singular moment in history.
Cast includes Danielle Brooks, Mike Colter, Oscar Nunez, Guillermo Diaz, Asante Blackk, Peter Scanavino, Lachlan Watson, Max Jenkins and Marsha Stephanie Blake.
Tara Herrmann, Blake McCormick and Jenji Kohan executive produce. Diego Velasco serves as co-executive producer.
Social Distance premieres globally on Netflix on Thursday, October 15.
