The cast and crew of Freeform's highly anticipated new series "Marvel's Cloak& Dagger" attended the world premiere watch party at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, March 11, an event which marked FreeForm and Marvel Television's first presence at the popular festival. "Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" is the story of Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) - two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened by and awakened to newly discovered superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another.
Following the world premiere, series stars Holt and Joseph, along with executive producer and showrunner Joe Pokaski, director Gina Prince-Bythewood, and executive producer and Marvel's Head of Television Jeph Loeb, took the stage for a discussion about creating "Cloak" and "Dagger" - a pair of young adults navigating life's issues of relationships, loss and race, and forming their own identities. The series is based on the beloved comic characters and is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios.
"Marvel's Cloak & Dagger" premieres on THURSDAY, JUNE 7 (8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. EDT), with a two-hour event on Freeform.
