Netflix is staying relevant with a new show called Social Distance

but it's still in pre-production

With many productions being put on hold during the pandemic, Netflix has given the green light to a new project that will focus on social distancing.

Helmed by Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan, Social Distance will be directed and produced remotely with actors filming themselves in their own homes. The show will be an anthology series so each episode will have its own self-contained story. Jenji explained: “Our job as storytellers is to reflect reality, and in this new, bizarre, bewildering reality we are all experiencing, we feel passionate about finding connection as we all remain at a distance. We’ve been inspired to create an anthology series that tells stories about the current moment we are living through — the unique, personal, deeply human stories that illustrate how we are living apart, together”.

No episode count or release date has been set yet (as it is still in pre-production) but keep your ear to the ground for more updates about this unique new Netflix series.
