Published Apr 13, 2017Netflix's Dear White People is set to hit the streaming service later this month, and the first official trailer has just landed.
The show is an ironic, self-deprecating and brutally honest depiction of racial tensions in a supposedly "post-racial" America that first and foremost leads the way with humour.
Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university, the satirical show is driven by powerful characters of colour "as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age."
Dear White People picks up where Justin Simien's 2014 film of the same name left off, with Yvette Lee Bowser stepping into the showrunner role. It stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson — and you can get your first look at the new show in the trailer below.
Dear White People arrives on Netflix on April 28.
