As the current confinements of social distancing and self-isolation continue to prove challenging to content providers creating programing, WarnerMedia is tackling the subject head-on with two new shows, both produced under strict pandemic safety. Announced during their virtual Television Critics Association Press Tour panel on August 5, HBO will debut Coastal Elites (pictured below) featuring Bette Midler, Kaitlyn Dever, Dan Levy, Sarah Paulson, and Issa Rae to name a few, while streaming platform HBO MAX will debut Selena + Chef, starring Selena Gomez (pictured at top) and a host of virtual culinary counterparts whipping up everything from octopus to miso soup in her home kitchen. One show takes a look at the dire straits of a divided country through the social commentary of Zoom conversations. The other focuses on educating our youth.
