Netflix has unveiled the first teaser for its upcoming series from co-creators Ava DuVernay and Colin KaepernickColin in Black & White

The six-episode limited series features Jaden Michael as a young Colin before he becomes the cultural icon and activist known to the world today. The streaming site describes the show as a coming-of-age story that follows the former NFL player during his youth as he tackles the obstacles of race, class and culture as a Black adopted child of a white family. 

"Life puts us on a path, sometimes winding. But always ours," the football star says in the released video. "Believe in your path, and by doing that, we can become who we’re destined to be."

"I'm excited to share this first peek into a project I co-created with the incomparable Ava DuVernay over the past couple of years," Kaepernick said in a statement. "I look forward to the world meeting the incredible Jaden Michael, a young actor who plays me during my high school years, just a kid growing up in Turlock, California, who wanted to play ball."

Kaepernick appears in the series as the present-day narrator that guides viewers through the on-screen moments, with Nick Offerman and Mary-Louise Parker starring as his well-meaning parents, Rick and Teresa.
