#TBBmustWatch Terrance Nance’s ‘Random Acts of Flyness’ HBO series…

Random Acts of Flyness is a late-night series from artist Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty).

The six-episode season explores evergreen cultural idioms such as patriarchy, white supremacy and sensuality from a new, thought-provoking perspective.

A fluid, stream-of-conscious response to the contemporary American mediascape, each episode of Random Acts of Flyness features a handful of interconnected vignettes, showcasing an ensemble cast of emerging and established talent. The show is a mix of verité documentary, musical performances, surrealist melodrama and humorous animation.

Nance and his collaborators weave together such themes as ancestral trauma, history, death, the singularity, romance and more, creating a television show like nothing seen before.

In addition to writing, directing, composing music for and executive producing the series, Nance appears in all six episodes. Guest stars include: Dominique Fishback (The Deuce), Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple), Gillian Jacobs (Love, Community), Ntare Guma Mwine (The Chi, The Knick), Adepero Oduye (Pariah, The Big Short, 12 Years a Slave), Natalie Paul (The Deuce) and Paul Sparks (Boardwalk Empire), among others.

Random Acts of Flyness was created by Terence Nance; written and directed by Terence Nance; executive producers, Terence Nance, Tamir Muhammad, Jamund Washington, Kishori Rajan, Kelley Robins Hicks, Chanelle Aponte Pearson, Ravi Nandan and John Hodges.

MVMT is producing the series in association with A24.
