Emmy Award® Winner Mary-Louise Parker and Emmy Award® Nominee Nick Offerman will star as Teresa Kaepernick and Rick Kaepernick, respectively, in Netflix’s limited series Colin in Black & White.
Teresa and Rick Kaepernick, the adoptive parents of Colin Kaepernick, must navigate what it means to raise a Black child in a predominantly white family and community.
It was previously announced that Jaden Michael will star as Colin Kaepernick during his formative high school years. The six-episode series will provide an introspective look at Kaepernick’s adolescent years as a Black teen growing up with a white adopted family. It will follow his journey to become a great quarterback while defining his identity and lending meaningful insight into the acts and experiences that led him to become the Freedom Fighter he is today.
Colin in Black & White was created by Super Bowl quarterback and Freedom Fighter Colin Kaepernick and Academy Award® Nominee and Emmy Award® Winner Ava DuVernay. Emmy Award® Nominee Michael Starrbury writes and serves as executive producer, alongside DuVernay and Kaepernick who will appear as himself as narrator of the series.
