One of Marvel’s newest television shows, Cloak & Dagger, has been given a Thursday time slot.
The series which is set to begin airing on Freeform next year is based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. The show will star Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt as the titular characters, with Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees) directing the pilot episode.
Marvel’s synopsis of the series is as follows:
Described as a superhero love story, Cloak and Dagger is based on the titular comic book duo (also known as Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson) who have appeared in Marvel Comics classics, including Spider-Man and X-Men stories. The live-action interracial romance follows the duo, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened and awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart, but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging.
