Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger TV show is a live-action interracial romance that follows Tandy Bowen (Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Joseph), two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves awakened to newly acquired superpowers while falling in love. Tandy can emit light daggers and Tyrone has the ability to engulf others in darkness. They quickly learn they are better together than apart — but their feelings for each other make their already complicated world even more challenging. Joe Pokaski (‘Underground,’ ‘Heroes’) is set as the showrunner/executive producer with Gina Prince-Bythewood (‘Love & Basketball’) set to direct.
