Brant Daugherty Dear White People

Pretty Little Liars' Brant Daugherty to Recur on Netflix's Dear White People

After spending seven years as Pretty Little Liars‘ resident evil genius, Brant Daugherty is setting his sights on a slightly dimmer role.

Daugherty will recur as star college athlete Thane Lockwood in the upcoming Netflix comedy Dear White People, TVLine has learned. A corn-fed jock, Thane performs much better on the football field than he does in any of his classes.

Based on the 2014 film, Dear White People follows a diverse group of students attending a mostly-white Ivy League school where race-related issues tend to get overlooked. The 10-episode first season of the Lionsgate-produced series begins production in September for a worldwide release on Netflix in 2017.

In addition to Pretty Little Liars, Dougherty’s TV credits include roles on Days of Our Lives and Army Wives. He also had a successful run on Dancing With the Stars in 2013. On the big screen, Daugherty is set to appear in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel Fifty Shades Darker.

    I adore Brant Daugherty and have probably seen everything he has performed in… so I plan to watch him in this, too (though the premise doesn’t sound very appealing to me). Brant deserves to have his own series as a romantic lead!
