John Wells has lined up two more scripted TV projects at HBO Max under his overall deal with Warner Bros. Television, the streamer announced Friday.

The first is a series inspired by the book “Things That Make White People Uncomfortable” from Michael Bennett and Dave Zirin. It is described as “a one-hour anthology series that has one goal: to make white people uncomfortable.” The first season will explore “the danger of white liberal thought” by taking a “hard look at how white liberal thought has impacted American society and contributed to the state of race relations in America today.”
