The streamer has released five photos from the six-episode, half-hour series co-created by Kaepernick and Ava DuVernay.
On Thursday, the streamer released first look photos of the scripted limited drama, from co-creators Kaepernick and Ava DuVernay.
The six-episode, half-hour series will explore Kaepernick’s adolescence, zeroing in on his time in high school and the coming-of-age experiences that informed who he is now. The Super Bowl quarterback and racial justice advocate narrates the series, while Jaden Michael plays a young version of the activist-athlete.
Colin in Black & White will see Michael navigating race, class and cultural obstacles as Kaepernick, the Black adopted child of a white family. Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker play Kaepernick’s adoptive parents, Rick and Teresa.
