The new Netflix series is going to be a six-part drama about Colin Kaepernick's rise to fame.
Colin Kaepernick is perhaps one of the most controversial figures in all of American sports. Back in 2016, Kaepernick came under fire after he knelt during the National Anthem. This move was done in protest of the injustices that were being done to black men at the hands of police. Despite the message behind the protest, many were unhappy with his methods, and it led to quite a bit of backlash. Eventually, Kaepernick was out of the NFL, and he hasn't been able to come back since.
Kaepernick has kept his activism alive during this time and he still receives endorsements from Nike and other companies. Now, he will even be getting his own Netflix series called Colin In Black & White which is a six-part biographical show that portrays Kaepernick's rise to fame.
