Freeform has launched a new social distancing campaign called #Staytheeffhome. The goal is to “encourage young adults to stay home.”

This campaign will feature talent from across the cable network “and includes out-of-home, on-air and social PSAs telling people everywhere to #StayTheFFHome. Through the use of social content, #StayTheFFHome aims to distract, educate and entertain fans while creating a sense of communal viewing.

As part of the campaign, the network is airing a special marathon of Freeform’s breakout comedy series, aptly titled “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay,” on Friday, April 3, starting at 5:30 p.m. EDT/PDT, featuring a live social talkback with the series’ talent on Twitter and Instagram Live.

The new show Everything’s Gonna Be Okay is about “Nicholas, a neurotic twenty-something-year-old, is visiting his dad and teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. When Nicholas’ trip is extended due to his father’s untimely death, the siblings are left 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
