HBO’s new late-night series, Random Acts of Flyness, from artist Terence Nance, takes on relevant cultural issues such as patriarchy, white supremacy and sensuality and presents them from Nance’s unique perspective.

Each episode is composed of interconnected vignettes that combines vérité documentary, musical performances, surrealist melodrama and humorous animation.

Nance wrote, directed, composed music for and executive produced the series and appears in all six episodes.

Guest stars include Dominique Fishback (HBO’s The Deuce), Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple), Gillian Jacobs (Love, Community), Ntare Guma Mwine (The Chi, Cinemax’s The Knick), Adepero Oduye (Pariah, The Big Short, 12 Years a Slave), Natalie Paul (HBO’s The Deuce) and Paul Sparks (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire), among others.

Besides Nance, the series is executive produced by Tamir Muhammad, Jamund Washington, Kishori Rajan, Kelley Robins Hicks, Chanelle Aponte Pearson, Ravi Nandan and John Hodges. MVMT is producing the series in association with A24.

The six-episode series premieres on HBO on Friday, Aug. 3, at midnight.
