The first look at Netflix’s remake of the 2014 hit film Dear White People is finally here.
The highly anticipated series based on the Justin Simien film will star Logan Browning as Samantha White, the biracial student at Winchester whose “Dear White People” radio show and “Ebony and Ivy” book puts her in high demand for a spokesperson position at a number of Black student groups.
According to The Verge, during a panel held in New York City, Simien explained that while making the original film was important to him, each of the characters he introduced needed more space and time to tell their stories. He told the crowd, “These characters belonged on TV. It almost killed me, in the best way.”
Although the series stars a mix of new faces, Brandon P. Bell will reprise his role as Troy Fairbanks, a political science student campaigning to become the first Black student president of his mostly White school.
Dear White People premieres on Netflix on April 28th.
