Co-created by Keith Knight and Marshall Todd, Woke centers on Keef Knight (Lamorne Morris), an African-American cartoonist who finds himself on the verge of mainstream success when an unexpected incident changes his life. With a newfound consciousness, Keef must navigate the new voices and ideas challenging him, all without setting fire to everything he’s already built.
Goings will play Hype, a friend of Ayana (Sasheer Zamata) and new love interest for Clovis (T. Murph). Hype knows what she wants and is confident in her views, but is open to new experiences and points of view.
Pinzon is Tommy, a blunt and inscrutable un-housed artist with a sharp wit who challenges Keef and his view of activism.
