Ava DuVernay & Colin Kaepernick have a very special project on the way!
Brilliant news below…
The now iconic Kaepernick has joined forces with Ava to create a comedy based on his life as a teenager in California following his bold and commendable decision to protest systemic racism against black people via his position in the National Football League.
DuVernay has a lot to do: casting for her yet-to-be-named Netflix limited series about the Central Park Five; working with editors, directors and writers on the third season of Queen Sugar, which started airing May 29; putting the finishing touches on her CBS pilot, Red Line; and meeting with her Wrinkle producer Jim Whitaker on two new projects, including the Battle of Versailles movie at HBO and a TV comedy series with Colin Kaepernick that centers on his high-school life.
A premiere date for the show is yet to be set as, as far as the pair’s supporters know, it is still on its way to finding a home.
Keep it locked on TGJ for more on this developing story.
