Director, Ava DuVernay is working on a very cool project! DuVernay is putting together a TV comedy series based on Colin Kaepernick’s experience as a high school athlete. Kaepernick attended John H. Pitman High School and was an all-state nominee during his senior year in football, basketball and baseball. According to DuVernay, the series will be something along the lines of ‘Friday Night Lights’ meets ‘Everybody Hates Chris’.

Though Ava is a strong supporter of Colin’s activism, the show will focus only on his high school career.
