The Daily Grind Video

The coronavirus pandemic changed life as we know it in a matter of weeks and while it’s difficult to put these unprecedented times into words, Netflix has apparently captured at least some of that hardship in a new anthology series. The show, Social Distance, is a completely remote production.

Here’s a quick synopsis:

“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.”
