Oprah’s Orlando-filmed show, ‘David Makes Man,’ premiers tomorrow
Last year, Hollywood came to Dr. Phillips High School, of all places.
Now it’s a year later, and the show premiers tomorrow, Aug. 14.
The events in the new drama series for the Oprah Winfrey Network aren’t actually in Orlando. It’s supposed to be Miami-based, telling the story of 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,” according to the OWN synopsis.
The show comes from Tarell Alvin McCraney, who co-wrote the screenplay for “Moonlight.”
The series will feature Phylicia Rashad (best known from The Cosby Show), and executive producers are Oprah, Michael B. Jordan (yes, that’s Killmonger from Black Panther), Mike Kelley and Melissa Loy.
