Oprah Winfrey has debuted the first trailer for the new Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) series David Makes Man, which debuts this summer.
On Wednesday, the 65-year-old media mogul took to her own Instagram to debut the video in two parts, along with a special message for fans.
‘I’m so excited to share with you the first look at our new scripted drama #DavidMakesMan,’ Oprah began.
‘I knew as soon as I heard the pitch from @ocatarell_again (series creator Tarell Alvin McCraney) that this was something that the world needed to see,’ she concluded.
The trailer features a number of other seemingly random scenes, including David shedding a single tear with his mother, along with glimpses at his home life in the South Florida projects that is much different than his school life.
The series is inspired by events in McCraney’s own life, as was his hit movie Moonlight, which explores, childhood trauma and the power of imagination to survive.’
The series creator also serves as an executive producer alongside Winfrey, Jordan and Dee Harris-Lawrence, who serves as the showrunner.
