Live-Action/Animation Comedy WOKE Sets Lamorne Morris As Lead


Hulu has ordered a Pilot for live-action/animation Woke with Larmorne Morris set as lead.

Woke is Inspired by the life and art of cartoonist Keith Knight. Written by Knight and Marshall Todd (Barbershop), Woke centers on Keef (Morris), a cartoonist living in San Francisco on the cusp of mainstream success when an unexpected incident involving cops changes everything, putting him in a state of “woke.”

Morris recently wrapped a seven-year run on Fox’s New Girl and starred in the feature Game Night. Up next, he will appear in National Geographic’s Valley of the Boom, Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles, Universal’s Untitled Danny Boyle/ Richard Curtis Project and Sony’s Bloodshot.
