San Diego Comic-Con is officially underway, taking place from this Thursday, July 20 to Sunday, July 23. While the event had to shift many of its plans due to the recent SAG-AFTRA strike, some news and updates are still coming out of the event for fiilm and television projects. Included among them is the forthcoming television series Young Love from Max. The Hair Love inspired series was greenlit three years ago, and today, Max released the first clip from the series.
As mentioned, Young Love is based upon the short film Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry. The 12-episode first season centers on a Black family: two millennial parents named Stephen and Angela, their young daughter Zuri, and her cat Rocky. The series will see Stephen and Angela work to balance their careers, parenthood, and marriage. Moreover, Young Love will examine relevant and pressing social issues as well as multi-generational dynamics as the family strives for a better life. Cherry created and executive produces the series.
