'Dear White People' Netflix trailer: Adaptation of film coming to Netflix in April

Netflix

Dear White People is getting a second life come April. The property, which first came to be as an acclaimed film, will make its return as a series on Netflix. The streaming service unveiled the first teaser trailer for the series — along with the show's release date — at a presentation to press in New York City.

The Dear White People film followed an Ivy-esque college campus through a year of racial and political turmoil, primarily seen through the eyes of campus radio host Samantha White (played by Creed's Tessa Thompson). Samantha, who in the film hosted a radio program called "Dear White People," will be making a return in the series, as seen in the teaser.

Overall, the teaser looks to be a pretty faithful adaptation of the film — which should prove interesting as a multi-hour series, considering the movie was just 108 minutes long. Fans of the film will get their chance to find out when Dear White People hits Netflix April 28.
