Hulu has ordered a pilot based on the life of The K Chronicles cartoonist Keith Knight, with The New Girl's Lamorne Morris cast in the key role, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The sitcom, titled Woke, is written by Knight and Marshall Todd.
"... the half-hour, single-camera comedy revolves around an African-American cartoonist who is on the cusp of mainstream success when his mild comics take a decidedly provocative tone following a run-in with police," reads THR's description of the show. "Now, Keef (Morris) is in an irreversible state of 'woke' as he struggles to navigate his day-to-day existence - without blowing up everything he's built - while animated objects invade his reality."
Woke is intended to be a blend of live-action and animated sequences, with production set to begin in January 2019.
