KWAME PATTERSON AND ARLEN ESCARPETA JOIN THE CAST OF OWN'S PEABODY AWARD-WINNING DRAMA "DAVID MAKES MAN," FROM ACADEMY AWARD WINNER TARELL ALVIN McCRANEY

New Series Regulars to Play Adult 'David' and 'JG' in Second Season of Drama from Warner Horizon Scripted Television

LOS ANGELES - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today the addition of two new series regulars for the second season of "David Makes Man," the Peabody Award-winning and critically acclaimed drama from Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney ("Moonlight") and Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Kwame Patterson ("Snowfall," "The Wire") and Arlen Escarpeta ("The Oath") have joined the cast in series regular roles as the adult versions of David and his brother JG. Patterson and Escarpeta join returning series regulars Akili McDowell, Alana Arenas, Travis Coles and Cayden K. Williams for season two.

McCraney executive produces the series alongside Dee Harris-Lawrence ("All Rise," "Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.,") who serves as showrunner. Mike Kelley and Melissa Loy ("Revenge"), under their Page Fright production banner, Michael B. Jordan ("Just Mercy," "Creed") via his Outlier Society Productions, and Oprah Winfrey via Harpo Films are also executive producers.

The first season of "David Makes Man" centered on David Young (Akili McDowell), a 14-year-old prodigy learning to survive the streets that raised him and the higher education that could offer him a way out. Season two finds David in his early 30s (played by Patterson), a rising business man facing an opportunity that will change him and his community forever; the mounting pressure forces David to choose between the instincts that helped him survive or finding a new way to finally, truly live.

Patterson can be seen in a recurring role in the upcoming fourth season of FX's "Snowfall." He previously appeared in recurring roles in HBO's acclaimed drama "The Wire," Showtime's "Ray Donovan," Crackle's "The Oath" and FX's "The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story," among others. His film credits include "The Outpost" and the upcoming "Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar."

Escarpeta's television credits include series regular roles in Crackle's "The Oath" and NBC's "American Dreams," and a recurring role in SYFY's "The Magicians," among others. He also starred as Bobby Brown in the Lifetime original film "Whitney." His feature film credits include "Into the Storm," "Final Destination 5," "Brotherhood," "Friday the 13th" (2009), and "We Are Marshall," among others.

"David Makes Man" is produced by Page Fright, Outlier Society Productions and Harpo Films in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television.

Kwame Patterson is represented by Global Artists Agency and Luber Roklin Entertainment. Arlen Escarpeta is represented by Karen Forman Management and A3 Talent Agency.
