The Quarantine-Produced Anthology Series
Premieres Thursday, October 15 on Netflix
SOCIAL DISTANCE creator and showrunner Hilary Weisman Graham on the decision to tell these timely stories via various modes of technology:
“Ultimately, SOCIAL DISTANCE is a show about people struggling to stay connected with each other. Like most of us, being online consumes a large chunk of our days as it’s often the only way to keep in touch with family and friends while sheltering in place. So we decided to lean in to this constraint and fully embrace our reliance on technology by making it the point-of-view of the show.”
About SOCIAL DISTANCE:
Set in the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic, SOCIAL DISTANCE is an eight-part anthology series that 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.
Conceived, cast and executed entirely remotely during quarantine, SOCIAL DISTANCE is created and executive-produced by showrunner Hilary Weisman Graham and executive-produced by Tara Herrmann, Blake McCormick and Jenji Kohan. Diego Velasco serves as co-executive producer.
