"Modern Love," the popular column from The New York Times about intimacy in all its forms, premieres Friday as a television show. "Modern Love" previously branched out as a podcast produced by WBUR.

Amazon has turned popular column submissions into semi-fictionalized episodes. The anthology show features an ensemble cast, with plenty of big names like Tina Fey and Anne Hathaway.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with NPR TV critic Eric Deggans (@Deggans) about the adaptation.

This segment aired on October 18, 2019.
