DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery, Inc.'s press release, April 2019) David Makes Man is a one-hour lyrical drama from Academy Award-winning creator Tarell Alvin McCraney ("Moonlight"), executive produced by Michael B. Jordan ("Black Panther") and Oprah Winfrey, that centers on a 14-year-old prodigy from the projects who is haunted by the death of his closest friend and relied on by his hardworking mother to find a way out of poverty. Set in South Florida, the drama, inspired by events in McCraney's own life, stars Akili McDowell ("The Astronaut Wives Club") who plays "David," the ferociously driven, passionate young teenager who toggles between two distinct personas that reflect his surroundings. David metabolizes the world like a chameleon, using his vivid and powerful imagination to escape the inherent trauma of poverty. The series also stars Phylicia Rashad ("Creed," "The Cosby Show") as David's teacher Dr. Woods-Trap. Summer premiere on OWN.
