Will You Watch A TV Series Based On The Ku Klux Klan? A&E Believes You Will, Eight-Part Show Out In January!
A TV series will be out this January about the hooded members of the group Ku Klux Klan. A&E has ordered an eight-part series and it will be entitled "Generation KKK" and will focus on the family members of the klansmen trying to distance themselves from the violent hate group.
According to reports, A&E has been following some of the members of the group for the past year and it will be featuring the dialogues between some of the leaders and their families as they want to be out of the group, USA Today reported. Accordingly, the project about following some members of the Ku Klux Klan came from the production company called This Is Just A Test. It is expected that "Generation KKK" will be revealing the faces and the names of the members of Ku Klux Klan since they reportedly gave full permission.
Fans will be seeing an Imperial Wizard trying to recruit his daughter into joining Ku Klux Klan. Another is an Iraq war veteran inculcating racist rhetoric to his four-year-old son. The Anti-Defamation League supports A&E with the project noting that the series is a laudable effort to understand and expose Ku Klux Klan in an attempt to understand why many are lured into joining the group and how difficult it is to get out of the clan.
The Hollywood Reporter shared that A&E has been releasing controversial documentaries and TV series. Just recently, they followed Leah Remini's expose about the Church of Scientology. "Live PD" and "Born This Way" also garnered a lot of ratings for the network.
Accordingly, the timing of "Generation KKK" has been set in order to show the division of Americans now after the win of Donald Trump in the November elections. Also, the membership in Ku Klux Klan remains to increase showing that there is really a sharp division amongst Americans.
"Generation KKK" will be out by January 10. Catch it on A&E at 10 P.M.
