Colin in Black & White is “a bold new limited series that chronicles Kaepernick’s coming of age story, tackling the obstacles of race, class, and culture as the Black adopted child of a white family,” reads the official synopsis. “Colin in Black & White stars Jaden Michael as Young Colin before reaching the highest levels of American football as an NFL quarterback and becoming a cultural icon and activist; Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker as his well-meaning parents Rick and Teresa; and Colin Kaepernick himself, who appears as the present-day narrator of his own story, guiding viewers through a robust and colorfully presented array of historical and contemporary contextual moments. You don’t know Kaepernick until you know Colin.”

DuVernay and Kaepernick executive produce the series, with DuVernay directing an episode alongside other series’ directors Robert Townsend, Sheldon Candis, Kenny Leon, and Angel Kristi Williams. Michael Starrbury serves as writer, showrunner, and executive producer.
