The TV series looks to expand on the themes of the film so check out its summary below.

A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

Daugherty will play Thane Lockwood, a corn-fed jock. The star running back on the college football team, he is not the brightest bulb in the scoreboard. A bit of an affable goof.

Dear White People is set to premiere on Netflix in 2017.
