The football player who may have destroyed the NFL brand beyond repair, and who wore socks depicting cops as pigs as well as a Fidel Castro T-shirt, will be getting a TV comedy series about his life in high school.

According to HuffPo, the colossus of woke director Ava DuVernay, who delivered the epic failure "A Wrinkle In Time" earlier this year by erasing the source material's blatant Christian themes, will be "working on a TV comedy series with Colin Kaepernick that focuses on his high school life."

Speaking with producer Jim Whitaker in Vanity Fair, DuVernay said the series will be like "'Friday Night Lights’ meets ‘Everybody Hates Chris.'"

"What’s not to love?" she asked.

DuVernay has long supported Kaepernick's activism. "I think his actions have been inspiring to so many people. I see what he’s done as art," DuVernay said of him last year in an interview with GQ.

DuVernay continued: "I believe that art is seeing the world that doesn’t exist. You know a lot of people excel at creativity — making TV, movies, painting, writing books — but you can be an artist in your own life. Civil-rights activists are artists. Athletes are artists. People who imagine something that is not there. If you can imagine something that is not there and endeavor to make it be there, to manifest your imagination? What’s in your heart? What’s in your mind? And make it so? That’s an artist’s spirit."

“So definitely his resistance, his protest, the manner in which he’s gone on living life in his interactions with the NFL have been extremely inspiring to me as an artist," she said. "Extremely motivating and nourishing. I just feel fortunate that I’ve had a chance to get to know him personally, to talk to him."

DuVernay's "A Wrinkle In Time" lost Disney $100 million precisely because it pushed an SJW agenda, ridding the source material of its Christian themes while pushing a New Age spirituality.
