Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's life will be the subject of an upcoming Netflix series created by the same team that produced a recent Emmy-nominated series on the Central Park Five, CNN reported.

The series, "Colin in Black & White," will be led by Ava DuVernay and executive produced by Michael Starrbury and Kaepernick and will "focus on Kaepernick's formative high school years, lending meaningful insight into the acts and experiences that led him to become the activist he is today," according to Netflix.

The project will be a scripted series focusing on Kaepernick's upbringing as a black person adopted and raised by white parents and how that background shaped his path to becoming an NFL star and eventually a full-time social justice activist.

"Too often we see race and black stories portrayed through a White lens," Kaepernick said in a statement. "We seek to give new perspective to the differing realities that black people face. We explore the racial conflicts I faced as an adopted black man in a White community, during my high school years. It's an honor to bring these stories to life in collaboration with Ava for the world to see."

DuVernay has been supportive of Kaepernick's controversial national anthem kneeling protest, which some blame for his departure from the league. DuVernay participated in a boycott of the Super Bowl and accused the NFL of racist treatment of Kaepernick.

Despite continued rhetoric from NFL executives and coaches about the potential for Kaepernick to resume his football career, it appears increasingly unlikely that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback will return to professional football. Kaepernick derailed a tryout set up by the league last year, and no team has expressed interest in signing him.

His off-field pursuits have been profitable, however. In addition to the upcoming Netflix series, Kaepernick has a lucrative Nike endorsement and a seven-figure deal for an upcoming memoir.

5 shows to watch on Netflix after Warrior Nun

Here are five great shows to watch on Netflix after Warrior Nun.

Have you seen the new series Warrior Nun on Netflix? Have you completely binged your way through the first season? Then you may be looking for something new to watch next.

While it may seem hard to compete with a show titled Warrior Nun featuring a young girl waking up in the morgue with unexplained powers, there are actually a number of shows that we think could fit the bill as your follow up to the series. In fact, I have found five shows you may enjoy now that you have finished season one (and while you wait for Netflix to decide to renew the show for a second season).

Whether it’s the supernatural component of the series that you enjoyed, the kick-butt female lead, or even the whole waking up in the morgue thing, each of these shows delivers a little bit of the magic that Warrior Nun offered up.

Short Sell: If you enjoyed the idea of Ava saving the world, along with the idea of secret sects and even paranormal abilities, you will definitely enjoy The Protector. This series delivers many of the same elements of Warrior Nun, but without the female lead. Of course, The Protector is also about saving a city more than the world, so there is that too.

Overall, this is a series I hope more people start streaming as it is definitely an enjoyable adventure. There is something to be said for secret societies, immortal villains, and surprise quests when it comes to epic binge watches.

Netflix describes:

Discovering his ties to a secret ancient order, a young man living in modern Istanbul embarks on a quest to save the city from an immortal enemy.
