Composer Kris Bowers (Green Book, Bridgerton, Dear White People, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Mrs. America) is reuniting with writer/producer/director Ava DuVernay on the upcoming Netflix limited series Colin in Black and White. The show is created by DuVernay (Selma, A Wrinkle in Time) & athlete/activist Colin Kaepernick (who is also providing the voiceover narration) and stars Jaden Michael, Mary-Louise Parker and Nick Offerman. The 6-part drama explores Kaepernick’s high school years and chronicles what inspired him to risk his livelihood in support of civil rights. DuVernay & Kaepernick are also executive producing the ARRAY Filmworks production with Paul Garnes (Queen Sugar, Cherish the Day), Michael Starrbury (The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete) and Sarah Bremner. Bowers has previously collaborated with DuVernay on the Netflix limited series When They See Us. Colin in Black and White will premiere on October 29, 2021 on Netflix.

Bowers also has the second season of Netflix’s Bridgerton coming up. The composer’s other recent projects include Reinaldo Marcus Green’s King Richard, which just premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and is scheduled to be released in theaters and on HBO Max on November 19, as well as Liesl Tommy’s Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, which is now playing in theaters and is also available on PVOD.
