Chris Rock famously quipped, “There's not a white man in America who would trade places with me, and I'm rich!”
BLACKER is an American comedy series about racism created by Rhett Owen and Eric Lockley that takes Rock's point to heart. The show follows Addison Lovingwood (played by both Lockley and Owen), an obnoxious white guy whose life is turned upside down by some actual #blackgirlmagic that causes strangers to see him as black. Each episode explores the impact on Addison's life, from his upcoming job interview to meeting his girlfriend's parents for the first time, until he figures out what's going on and heads off on a desperate search to find the witch and reverse the spell.
BLACKER is produced by Owen's company, Naughty Puppy Productions, in New York City.
