Netflix Orders a TV Adaptation of Justin Simien’s ‘Dear White People’

By

Justin Simien’s 2014 film Dear White People is getting a TV adaptation at Netflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming network has given a 10-episode order to a comedy series based on the film, and Simien will write the episodes and direct the premiere. Like the film, the series will follow “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. The series is a send up of ‘post-racial’ America that also weaves a universal story about forging one’s own unique path.” The series will begin production later this year and debut on Netflix sometime in 2017.
