Plot Synopsis

Filmed entirely during COVID-19 confinement, ONCE UPON A QUARANTIME follows four couples who have been self-filming their new reality during the crisis. Featuring raw and emotional self-shot footage over 60 days, the one-hour television event offers an intimate "fly on the wall" look at how these couples are facing major life milestones -- from pregnancies and changes in birth plans to quarantine weddings and border barriers separating fiances -- all while living life under lockdown. Lifetime premiered the unscripted special -- also sometimes called a pilot by listing services -- on Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT. The four couples include:

Shannon and John (New Jersey): First time parents Shannon and John have chosen to revise their hospital birth plan, opting for a home birth in a birthing pool. Shannon thinks it's a great idea, but John is not convinced.

Jennifer and Romain (California & France): Jennifer and Romain's wedding in a French castle has been derailed by the pandemic. The couple applied for a visa for him to return to the States, but now the visa offices are closed indefinitely and France's borders are closed, further testing their love.

Camillia and Marquis (Ohio): Baby number 3 is due and the couple is balancing homeschooling their kids while prepping for birth. Marquis is the only person allowed to go to the hospital with Camillia and once he is there will not be able to leave, so the couple may be in lockdown at the hospital for days.

Crystal and Luis (Southern California): Luis and Crystal's Mexican wedding is all planned and their families who live in Mexico are pressuring them to come down and get married. Unsure if they will be able to get back into the U.S. if they travel to Mexico, the couple is debating whether to take the risk or devise a new wedding plan.
