Premiere Date Highlights


The second season of Terence Nance’s HBO series Random Acts of Flyness, which is subtitled The Parable of the Pirate and the King, premieres at midnight, Dec. 9. The series stars the artist, musician, and filmmaker as he explores the metaphysics of Black life through avant-garde storytelling. The second season focuses on Nance’s Terence and a character named Najja (played by Alicia Pilgrim). They’re a couple who are looking to heal generational wounds and reintroduce themselves to the ways of their ancestors.
