HBO just announced a premiere date for Random Acts of Flyness, a new late-night series from artist Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty), kicking off its six-episode season Friday, August 3 (midnight-12:30 a.m. ET), exclusively on HBO, followed by other episodes subsequent Fridays at the same time.
The show 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 vérité 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.
