Facebook Watch has released the first trailer for a new series that they’ve produced called Sorry For Your Loss. The original series stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young woman who is in the process of dealing with the death of her husband and she starts to find out a lot of stuff about him that she didn’t previously know. She is also trying to figure out how to move forward with life. Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
The sudden death of her husband upends and transforms every relationship in Leigh Shaw’s life. It also forces her to realize there was a lot about her husband that she didn’t know.
The show is simultaneously devastating and uplifting, with grounded, flawed characters desperate to find humor anywhere they can. The series dives into grief as an unavoidable, universal, transformative part of life. Leigh’s journey will teach us that grief is not something merely to endure, medicate away or ‘muscle through,’ but an essential part of the human experience.
The half-hour series was created and written by Kit Steinkellner, who previously worked on Amazon’s Z: The Beginning of Everything. The pilot for the series was directed by James Ponsoldt, who previously brought us films such as The Spectacular Now, Smashed, and The End of the Tour.
There’s a very talented team behind this show and it looks like it will tell a wonderful and moving story.
Sorry For Your Loss also stars Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and Jovan Adepo (Overlord) and it arrives on Facebook Watch on September 18, 2018.
