‘Colin In Black & White’: Netflix Shares Footage For Colin Kaepernick Series In Emmys Spot

Netflix unveiled the first look at footage for its upcoming Colin Kaepernick limited series Colin In Black and White during Sunday’s 73rd annual Emmy Awards.

Set to premiere on October 29, the six-episode scripted drama from Ava DuVernay chronicles Kaepernick’s coming-of-age tackling the obstacles of race, class and culture as the Black adopted child of a white family in Central California. Kaepernick narrates the tale as high school Colin (Jaden Michael) faces adversity on his way to becoming an All-Pro quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and later a cultural icon and activist.

The 30-second clip follows Kaepernick’s ascent from high school Football star to unapologetic voice for racial justice and equality. In addition to showcasing Michael’s take on the young Kaepernick, the teaser also sees Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker as parents Rick and Teresa. The series also features Amarr Wooten, Mace Coronel and Klarke Pipkin.

DuVernay, Sheldon Candis, Robert Townsend, Angel Kristi Williams and Kenny Leon served as directors on the series, which is executive produced by DuVernay, Kaepernick and Michael Starrbury, the latter of whom wrote the series.
