‘Colin in Black & White’ pictures function Jaden Michael as younger Colin Kaepernick
Netflix is giving a glimpse of the brand new series Colin in Black & White.
The streaming service shared first-look pictures for the six-part restricted series Thursday.
Colin in Black & White explores soccer star Colin Kaepernick’s formative highschool years and the way his upbringing and early experiences led him to change into an activist. Kaepernick, a biracial adoptee, grew up in a White household.
Kaepernick performed soccer for the San Francisco 49ers for six seasons. He has been a free agent since 2017, following controversy over him kneeling throughout the nationwide anthem at NFL games as a protest in opposition to police violence.
Colin in Black and White is written by Michael Starrbury. Ava DuVernay serves as a director and government producer on the series.
“I am excited to share this primary peek right into a challenge I co-created with the incomparable Ava DuVernay over the previous couple of years,” Kaepernick mentioned in an announcement. “I stay up for the world assembly the unbelievable Jaden Michael, a younger actor who performs me throughout my highschool years, only a child rising up in Turlock, California, who needed to play ball.”
Colin in Black & White premieres Oct. 29 on Netflix.
