A comedy, the Woke TV series is inspired by the life and work of artist Keith Knight. The show stars Lamorne Morris, T. Murph, Blake Anderson, T. Murph, Lara Goldie, and Sasheer Zamata. In the story, Keef Knight (Morris) is an African-American cartoonist who unexpectedly finds himself on the verge of mainstream success. Keef typically makes a point of avoiding controversy but one day, he’s wrongly detained by overly-aggressive police while hanging flyers to promote his comic. Traumatized, Keef gains the ability to hear the thoughts of inanimate objects. 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 burning the professional and personal relationships he’d previously built.
The series debuted in September 2020 with eight episodes. The show was renewed for a second season but viewers didn’t see the new episodes until this past April. Production on season two was shut down three times due to COVID.
