Black America - Netflix
Black America envisions an alternate history where newly freed African Americans have secured the Southern states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama post-Reconstruction as reparations for slavery, and with that land, the freedom to shape their own destiny. The sovereign nation they formed, New Colonia, has had a tumultuous and sometimes violent relationship with its looming "Big Neighbor," both ally and foe, the United States. The past 150 years have been witness to military incursions, assassinations, regime change, coups, etc. Today, after two decades of peace with the U.S. and unprecedented growth, an ascendant New Colonia joins the ranks of major industrialized nations on the world stage as America slides into rapid decline. Inexorably tied together, the fate of two nations, indivisible, hangs in the balance.

Black America is an upcoming alternative history television drama that imagines a nation-state formed by African-Americans called New Colonia after the Civil War as reparations for slavery. The show is a collaboration between producer Will Packer and The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder for Amazon Video. McGruder is writing screenplays for the series, which has been under development for over a year as of August 2017.
Central to the series's premise is the granting of three southern states — Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama — to freed slaves as reparations after the Civil War. The announcement of the in-development series came in response to HBO's announcement of its own upcoming series Confederate, which posits a different alternate history branching from the Civil War period. Both series are set in the modern day.
