At the inaugural Freeform Summit today in Los Angeles, the network released a brand new sneak peek at the upcoming series Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger. The pilot episode was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball and Beyond the Lights).
The series will premiere on Thursday, June 7 (8:00 – 10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT).
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger is a coming-of-age series based on the beloved Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul. Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life changing event. Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.
Aubrey Joseph (The Night Of, Run All Night) and former Disney Channel star Olivia Holt (I Didn’t Do It) have been cast as Cloak & Dagger, playing the title heroes, Tyrone Johnson, a.k.a. Cloak and Tandy Bowen, a.k.a. Dagger.
