Ke Nui Road and Things That Make White People Uncomfortable - Drama & Anthology Series in Development at HBO Max

John Wells has set up two more shows at HBO Max including a lifeguard drama from Animal Kingdom writer Matt Kester and a series inspired by the book Things That Make White People Uncomfortable.

Ke Nui Road is a contemporary drama set on the North Shore of Oahu, focusing on the relationships between an elite crew of heavy-water lifeguards and the teens and young adults they mentor and train in the junior lifeguard program. The junior guards program embodies the beauty, the danger, the struggle, and the spirit of aloha — all centered on the ocean — that is modern Hawaii.

Things That Make White People Uncomfortable is inspired by Michael Bennett and Dave Zirin’s book of the same name. It is a one-hour anthology series that has one goal: to make white people uncomfortable. The theme of the first season is ‘the danger of white liberal thought.’ Each episode will take a hard look at how white liberal thought has impacted American society and contributed to the state of race relations in America today.
