Created, written and directed by artist Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty), Random Acts Of Flyness explores evergreen cultural idioms such as patriarchy, white supremacy and sensuality from a thought-provoking perspective. A fluid, stream-of-consciousness response to the contemporary American mediascape, the series features a handful of interconnected vignettes in each episode, featuring an ensemble cast of emerging and established talent. The show is a mix of vérité documentary, musical performances, surrealist melodrama and humorous animation, weaving together themes such as ancestral trauma, history, death, the singularity, romance and more. Random Acts of Flyness kicked off its six-episode first season Friday, August 3 at midnight ET/PT.
Nance executive produces with Tamir Muhammad, Jamund Washington, Kishori Rajan, Kelley Robins Hicks, Chanelle Aponte Pearson, Ravi Nandan and John Hodges.

Directors for season one include: Frances Bodomo, Mariama Diallo, Shaka King, Darius Clark Monroe, Terence Nance, Naima Ramos-Chapman and Jamund Washington.
