What would happen if you woke up one morning as a different race or ethnicity? How different would your life be? That is one of the themes explored in writer/director/producer Jason D. Gregory’s new television pilot, WAKING UP WHITE.
“A Black family wakes up White and has 30 days to decide if they’d rather return to their cultural roots or stick with the ‘new skin’ that they are in.” Is the grass truly greener on the other side?
Hilarity by Default talks with Gregory about the inspirations and ambitions behind this upcoming project. Check out his website and trailer here.
