Netflix is becoming home to some of the best programming on TV, streaming or otherwise. And now it is home to the series based on the 2014 indie hit film Dear White People, which will premiere on April 28 with 10 episodes.
With a cast that includes Logan Laurice (VH1’s Hit The Floor) as the central character Samantha White who creates the campus radio show “Dear White People,” Brandon P. Bell, reprising his original character from the film as Troy Fairbanks and Nia Long as Neika Hobbs, an African-American studies professor at the fictional, predominately white Winchester University, Dear White People has all the makings of a runaway hit series for Netlix.
Based on the 2014 film, the series follows a similar narrative, which is based on director Justin Simien’s own experiences at a predominately white university. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in so-called ‘post-racial’ America, while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.
