Netflix Developing Colin Kaepernick Series Led By Ava DuVernay
Written by on July 2, 2020
Netflix is set to produce a six-episode series on Colin Kaepernick called ‘Colin in Black & White.’ Kaepernick will narrate the scripted limited drama, which comes from director Ava DuVernay. Colin in Black & White is DuVernay’s latest project with Netflix following her acclaimed limited series, ‘When They See Us.’
Netflix says Kaepernick’s series will focus on his adolescent years while growing up with a white adopted family. It will also portray his high school life and events that led him to advocate for social justice. An actor will play a younger version of the now 32-year-old Kaepernick.
Kaepernick has remained unsigned in the NFL since 2017, soon after he began kneeling during the National Anthem.
