FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Based on Justin Simien's critically
acclaimed film of the same name, the
refreshing and thought-provoking satire

Dear White People
Season One


arrives on DVD May 8 from Lionsgate



SANTA MONICA, CA - Set among a diverse group of students of color, as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college, Dear White People Season One "gives you an abundance of characters to care about and entertains with its inspired, hilarious storytelling" (Entertainment Weekly). The show stars Logan Browning (TV's Meet the Browns, Hit the Floor), Brandon P. Bell (TV's Insecure), DeRon Horton (TV's Lethal Weapon), Antoinette Robertson (TV's Heart of Dixie, Atlanta), John Patrick Amedori (TV's Gossip Girl, Hindsight), Ashley Blaine Featherson (TV's Glee), and guest stars Marque Richardson (TV's True Blood, The Newsroom), with Featherson, Richardson, and Pell reprising their original roles from the film in this timely comedy. The series is produced by Lionsgate for Netflix, and received a very rare and coveted 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university, where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People Season One is a send-up of the now post-postracial America that tells the universal story of finding one's own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series - which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off - follows a group of Winchester University students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof), and activism in the millennial age. Through its absurdist lens, Dear White People Season One leads with laughter as it utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation, and sometimes brutal honesty to hold a mirror up to the issues plaguing society today.

The series is created and executive produced by Simien (Dear White People), who also directed the first episode. Yvette Lee Bowser (TV's Black-ish, Living Single) serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Stephanie Allain Bray (Hustle & Flow, Dear White People) and Julia Lebedev (The Dinner, Dear White People) also serving as executive producers.

The Dear White People Season One DVD special features include two never-before-seen featurettes, "Dear White People: Art as Activism" and "Filming Chapter V," and two audio commentaries on episodes "Chapter I" and "Chapter X" with Justin Simien. "Dear White People: Art as Activism" explores the show's multidimensional characters from the cast, showrunner, creator, and costume designer's perspective. "Filming Chapter V" centers on the Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) directed episode, "Chapter V," and why it's a powerful episode meant to be discussed. The Dear White People Season One DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98.
