What does Corona have for us!

Love in the Time of Corona depicts the lust for Love, sex, and connection with some amidst the time of social distancing and lockdowns.

Love in the Time of Corona

Staying at home all day has got everyone bottled up. All of us have stayed indoors for long, and what we want now is meeting our loved ones, having fun, and living out all comfortable. But, the conditions say otherwise.

Lovie in the Time of Corona shows the lives of the couples who are inside during the social-distancing. This miniseries gives us an insight into the real-life quarantine events too, which makes it feel more relatable to the public eyes.

Joanna also said, “We wanted to make something that felt relatable and uplifting, because we felt like a lot of people were craving things like that right now. Shows that you could watch and say, ‘There are some good things that have come out of being quarantined.’ Nothing good has come out of the coronavirus, but of having to slow down and reassess your relationships.”

How was Love in the Time of Corona filmed!?

The cast and crew kept a distance between each other. The artists did te makeup by themselves. A lot of precautionary measures did continue while filming.
