Today, during the Hulu Press Tour, Hulu presented the company’s lineup of upcoming original programming including semi-animated comedy series Woke starring Lamorne Morris. Check out the new trailer below:
Inspired by the life and work of artist Keith Knight, comedy series Woke takes an absurdly irreverent look at identity and culture as it follows Keef, an African-American cartoonist finally on the verge of mainstream success when an unexpected incident changes everything. With a fresh outlook on the world around him, Keef must now navigate the new voices and ideas that confront and challenge him, all without setting aflame everything he’s already built.
The series stars Lamorne Morris, T. Murph and Blake Anderson.
Woke is developed by Marshall Todd and Keith Knight. The co-creators serve as executive producers alongside showrunner Jay Dyer, Maurice “Mo” Marable, Aeysha Carr, Richie Schwartz, John Will, Will Gluck, and Eric Christian Olsen. Kate Schumaecker will serve as executive producer on the pilot. The series is a co-production between ABC Studios and Sony Pictures Television Inc.
Woke premieres on Hulu on Wednesday, September 9th.
