David Makes Man
You know we’re living in a TV golden age when an Oscar winner in his prime joins the game. Moonlight director Tarell Alvin McCraney created this new series, which in its premiere has the same lyrical look as that 2016 film. Here, the protagonist is a 14-year-old in South Florida who’s navigating two worlds: a mostly white magnet school and the public housing project he calls home. Akili McDowell gives the series its beating heart. Though plotting isn’t initially a strong point, McDowell makes you want to witness David’s entire journey. Wednesday, Aug. 14, at 10 p.m., OWN
