Amazon Prime Video has teamed up with TikTok to create Just So You Know, a new series that is based on their own original series Modern Love. The series spotlights six LGBTQ+ TikTok creators and sees them writing remarkable love letters to the love of their lives, confessing how they feel, and exploring what love looks like in modern times.
The series is directed by Joseph Wilson, a filmmaker and drag artist whose work is centered around identity and self-acceptance. It was filmed and created with the TikTok platform in mind, making use of its features.
Speaking about the project, he said: “I’m passionate about celebrating marginalised communities and bringing our narratives to mainstream audiences. That’s why the opportunity to create a series highlighting what love means to the LGBTQ+ community was so special.”
