Netflix has slotted April 28 for the premiere of Dear White People, its anticipated half-hour comedy series based on Justin Simien’s acclaimed debut indie feature.

et among a diverse group of students of color as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college where racial tensions are often swept under the rug, Dear White People is a sendup of “post-racial” America that also weaves a universal story about forging one’s own unique path. Brandon P. Bell, Logan Browning, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori and Ashley Blaine Featherson star.

The series is produced by Lionsgate, whose sister company Roadside Attractions released the original film in 2014.

  • I don’t know why people are so upset about this. It’s something that happens everyday on campuses all across the country. It’s not going to go away if we ignore or refuse to admit that it is happening. I think it will be an excellent show to showcase what POC are subjected to on a daily basis, at the very least.
