Watch the Trailer for PBS Docuseries ‘Raising Bertie’ Executive Produced by J. Cole

J. Cole has executive produced a docuseries and it’s coming to PBS beginning Monday, August 28th. Raising Bertie follows the lives of Reginald “Junior” Askew, Davonte “Dada” Harrell, and David “Bud” Perry “…as they face a precarious coming of age in rural Bertie County, North Carolina.” Filmed over the course of six years, the series is sure to be a beautiful demonstration of Black boyhood’s purity (both perfection & flaw). Cole’s partner, Raising Bertie’s director and producer Margaret Byrne, has been quoted as saying, “The truth is, I made a film about three kids I met and I cared about. The individuals in this story are representative of their community and they matter.” We’ll be tuned in. Watch the Raising Bertie trailer above.
