Amidst receiving a significant amount of criticism, Netflix continues to move forward with its new original series, Dear White People. Based on Justin Simien’s acclaimed indie film, the show satirizes “post-racial” America as students of color navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college. Simien in turn has been solicited to write and direct multiple episodes.

Marque Richardson, Wyatt Nash, Brant Daugherty, Nia Long, Nia Jervier, Jeremy Tardy and Jemar Michael star in the forthcoming Netflix original series, which is due out on April 28.

Ahead of the anticipated premiere, get an early look at Dear White People above.
