The fourth and final season of Kohan’s Netflix women’s wrestling dramedy “GLOW” had to shut down after two episodes because of the pandemic, but she turned lemons into lemonade by using COVID-19 as creative fodder for “Social Distance,” an eight-episode anthology on Netflix about people living under quarantine that had its actors self-shoot their segments. She also managed to release the series “Teenage Bounty Hunters” on the streamer ⁠— well received but cancelled after its debut season. The shows are the latest products of Kohan’s long and fruitful collaboration with Netflix, which began with one of its first original series, women’s prison dramedy “Orange Is the New Black,” which earned 20 Emmy nominations over the course of seven seasons.
