Netflix clearly has no intentions of hitting pause on their recent string of top-shelf originals. The streaming platform announced Thursday it has picked up Dear White People, Justin Simien‘s critically 2014 satirical drama, as an original series. The best part? Simien is on board for all 10 half-hour episodes.
“Justin is a gifted storyteller whose bold, unique vision is perfectly suited to Netflix,” Cindy Holland, Netflix’s Vice President of Original Content, said. “His original film Dear White People announced the arrival of a fresh, creative voice that had everyone talking, and we’re excited to have Justin create this new series for our members worldwide.”
