Freeform has released the trailer for its upcoming original comedy series Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.
The show, from “Please Like Me” creator Josh Thomas, revolves – according to the official synopsis – around Nicholas (Josh Thomas), a neurotic 25-year-old visiting his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. “He hasn’t been particularly present in his siblings’ lives, but when their dad reveals that he is terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realization that Nicholas is the one who will have to rise to the occasion, move in, and hold it all together,” the network reveals.
The series also star Kayla Cromer, Maeve Press and Adam Faison.
The 60-second trailer opens with Thomas’ character, Nicholas, talking to one of his half-sisters about the dress she’s about to wear at their dad’s funeral. Asked if it’s “really funeral appropriate,” the girl concludes, upset that she wasn’t warned by the lady in the store, that she looks like a child whore widow. Nicholas offers to be their guardian, asking “What’s the worst that can happen?” which makes Maeve Press’ character reply “So many bad things”. Cromer’s character, who has autism, tells a boy at high school that she writes her own songs and that she’s only into black men.
“Life can be tough. Death can be complicated. When feelings get weird. When people get real.” onscreen lines read throughout the trailer, which features the song “Upside Down World” by Extreme Music.
Season 1 of Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, consisting of 10 half-hour episodes, is coming soon to Freeform.
