Netflix Orders “Dear White People” Adaptation Straight-to-Series

(via Deadline)

Good for Netflix in going, as far as we can tell, for the series order right away. 

The satirical comedy Dear White People from Justin Simien will now be adapted into a TV series on Netflix. Simien is getting 10 episodes for this first season.

Given how much he was able to do with playing with racial tensions in a feature film, we can only ponder what he’ll be able to do with the latitude of a series on a streaming service.
