There’s no way around it: Quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic has made life rough. But for many perpetually stuck at home, the best way to push through an unprecedented year is to rely on friends, family and loved ones.
That’s the exact premise behind Connecting, a new ensemble comedy headed to NBC on Thursday, Oct. 8. As the name implies, the characters in this new show essentially hop on video calls to check in with each other, offer up some laughs and feel a bit more sane. A TV show about quarantine and a pandemic amid the quarantine and the pandemic is indeed meta, however, the cast and their jokes will make you smile.
In an exclusive sneak peek at the series premiere, stars Preacher Lawson, Otmara Marrero, Jill Knox, Keith Powell, Ely Henry, Shakina Nayfack and Parvesh Cheena open up about why they relate so much to the timely script.
