Hulu Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Woke' Starring Lamorne Morris

Hulu has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series Woke starring Lamorne Morris (New Girl).

All 8 episodes of the comedy's first season will be available on Wednesday, September 9.

Inspired by the life and work of artist Keith Knight, the comedy takes an absurdly irreverent look at identity and culture as it follows Keef (Morris), an African-American cartoonist finally on the verge of mainstream success when an unexpected incident changes everything. With a fresh outlook on the world around him, Keef must now navigate the new voices and ideas that confront and challenge him, all without setting aflame everything he's already built.

T. Murph and Blake Anderson also star.

Marshall Todd and Keith Knight created the comedy. They executive produce with showrunner Jay Dyer, Aeysha Carr, Richie Schwartz, John Will, Will Gluck, Eric Christian Olsen, Kate Schumaecker and director Maurice Marable. ABC Studios and Sony Pictures Television produce.
