Elizabeth Olsen, Kelly Marie Tran grapple with love and death in Sorry for Your Loss first look photos
Sorry For Your Loss
Leigh (Elizabeth Olsen) is trying to move on.
In Facebook Watch’s Sorry For Your Loss, Olsen (who also serves as an executive producer) plays a young widow who, following the sudden death of her husband, finds her life — and every relationship in it — changed by the event. Written and created by playwright Kit Steinkellner (Amazon’s Z: The Beginning of Everything), the half-hour drama also stars Kelly Marie Tran (in her first role since joining the Star Wars franchise), Jovan Adepo (The Leftovers), Mamoudou Athie (Unicorn Store), and Janet McTeer (Marvel’s Jessica Jones). The 10-episode half-hour series will premiere on Facebook Watch on Sept. 18.
Ahead, EW can exclusively reveal first look photos for the series, along with more on each of the characters entangled in Leigh’s story.
Leigh (Elizabeth Olsen)
The Avengers: Infinity War alum stars as Leigh Shaw, who struggles to live without her husband, Matt (Mamoudou Athie). But don’t call her weak: Leigh is tough and fierce (and sometimes admittedly judgmental). She knows she can be resilient, but grief complicates her already complicated life.
Leigh looks lost in thought. Matt was a funny and well-liked personality, but underneath his easygoing exterior was a man who had severe depression and anxiety. He had been tormented by plenty of personal demons — demons that will be revealed over the course of the series.
Jules (Kelly Marie Tran)
Leigh’s younger sister has a reputation for being the most fun (and most inebriated) person at any party.
Amy (Janet McTeer)
A fitness guru, Leigh and Jules’ mother is described as “a total force of nature” who is intensely protective of her daughters.

Neither, of course, are perfect. The women around Leigh are both shaken in the wake of Matt’s death: Jules is now trying her hardest to stay sober and move past her label as the disaster of the family, while Amy experiences a “crisis of faith” as she feels she’s losing control over what she’s built.
Danny (Jovan Adepo)
Matt’s brother, like everyone else, is still processing his death, but he’s not one to show it. An inscrutable man, Danny has always kept his walls up, but he may need to start removing his armor.
Danny and Leigh
Danny lost his brother; Leigh lost her husband. Both will deal with their grief in their own ways, but they at least appear to lean on each other here.

Mother and daughters have a talk, about something that clearly perturbs Leigh.
The clan share a beach-side toast.
