The series, created by Oscar Winner Tarell Alvin McCraney and Produced by Oprah and Michael B Jordan, has had rave reviews, with a selection below.
“David Makes Man emerges as one of the most innovative television shows debuting this year.” New York Times
“viewers seeking a well-told story about life among economically struggling people of color, one still too rarely told, will soon enough be able to count themselves lucky too.” Variety
“its poignant humanism, a potent mixture of gritty clarity and a dreamlike nostalgia for childhood and the past, is something distinctive.” Hollywood Reporter
“Something as simple as a song on the radio can tell you that you’re not a nobody. Something as simple as a TV show can do the same thing, particularly when a character like David is still such a rarity in a universe with 500-plus scripted TV shows — and when the show is as good as David Makes Man.” Rolling Stone
“David Makes Man is a stirring portrait of Black boyhood” Time
“brought to vivid life by a strong cast and director Michael Francis Williams’ enthralling visual design. Grand, intimate, and pressing, there’s a lot to admire” IndieWire
“David Makes Man transcends expectations. It transcends genre. It just… transcends. One of the most transcendent stories on television this year.” Paste
“a gorgeous, attention-grabbing new series” TV Guide
“It’s a powerful ode to the many different types of bonds we form — with friends and family members, with teachers and classmates; even with people who are no longer here” Them
