'Cloak and Dagger': Watch the Trailer for Freeform's Marvel Drama
A year after it was given a straight-to-series order, Freeform has unveiled a first look at its forthcoming Marvel drama Cloak and Dagger.
Picked up last April, Cloak and Dagger centers on the interracial romance between Cloak and Dagger, aka Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson, two teenagers from 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.
Underground's Joe Pokaski serves as showrunner on the drama from Marvel Television and ABC Signature. Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory also executive produce the series with Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball, Shots Fired) set to direct the pilot.
Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph star in the drama, which will premiere in 2018. Click here for the full cast.
