​ ​ ​ ​

The Lovebirds – starring Issa Rae – made a move to Netflix since the theaters are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Find out when you can stream it inside…

Netflix is coming through in the clutch (again)!

Since theaters have been shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Issa Rae’s new romantic comedy, The Lovebirds, will make its theatrical release via Netflix. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters on April 3rd (via Paramount Pictures), but since we’re all on quarantine, they inked a deal with Netflix.

The Lovebirds will be available to be streamed on May 22nd!

The “Insecure” star/creator teamed up with "The Big Sick" star Kumail Nanjiani for the romantic comedy that follows an interracial couple trying to finesse their way out of a murder.

Below is a synopsis of the film:

The script will see Rae and Nanjiani play a couple close to breaking up, who find themselves caught in a bizarre but funny murder mystery which they attempt to solve in order to clear their names, while also examining if they and their relationship can survive the circumstances. Nanjiani’s Big Sick director, Michael Showalter, will helm the film, and the script is penned by Aaron Abrams, Brendan Gall, and Martin Gero. The film will go into production at the end of the month and is co-produced and co-financed by MRC.
