Netflix has announced a new six-part scripted Series about Colin Kaepernick’s formative high school years, which he will narrate. Ava DuVernay and Kaepernick also will serve as Executive Producers alongside Writer Michael Starrbury.DuVernay and Starrbury last collaborated on Award-winning WHEN THEY SEE US for Netflix.
Titled COLIN IN BLACK & WHITE, the Series provides an introspective look at the Football star’s early life as a Black child growing up with a white adopted family and his journey to become a great quarterback while defining his identity.
This Show was the bane of my existence growing-up. I would watch this home alone and be terrified to the point I couldn’t even look at the title graphic or hear its theme song without shivering! Guess what? A revival is coming to Netflix! Why are the suspects always believed to be in Canada?!*run*
Synopsis: The iconic series UNSOLVED MYSTERIES is back! Fusing signature elements from the original series with contemporary immersive, character-driven storytelling, the 12 new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived the unthinkable — from the trauma of a loved one’s unexplained disappearance or horrific death, to the shock of a bizarre paranormal encounter. Alongside detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories, and identify suspects, hoping one viewer holds the key to solving the mystery.

Unsolved Mysteries streams on Netflix Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
We saw the sneak peak stills, here’s a first look at the new Trailer for HOLLYWOOD, from Ryan Murphy!
What if you could rewrite the story?
HOLLYWOOD follows a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers in post-World War II Hollywood as they try to make it in Tinseltown — no matter the cost. Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood’s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day.
Provocative and incisive, HOLLYWOOD exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled. HOLLYWOOD stars David Corenswet as Jack, Darren Criss as Raymond, Jeremy Pope as Archie, Laura Harrier as Camille, Samara Weaving as Claire, Dylan McDermott as Ernie, Holland Taylor as Ellen Kincaid, Patti LuPone as Avis, Jim Parsons as Henry Willson, Jake Picking as Rock Hudson, Joe Mantello as Dick, and Maude Apatow as Henrietta.
