The highly anticipated tv series Cloak and Dagger about the Marvel comic characters finally has a premiere date on Freeform. The drama aims to connect to the younger audiences, and introduce them to classic characters from the Marvel Comics lexicon.
Secret Life of Bees director Gina Prince-Bythewood is set to direct, and Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph star in the title roles. The show will focus on a romance between the titular characters, rather than a friendship as in the comics, with a Disney exec Mark Endemano comparing it to Romeo & Juliet. (Seriously, Mark?)
