DAVID MAKES MAN, which stars our Jordan Bolger, premiered last night in the US.

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

We are thrilled to announce that our Staz Nair has been cast as a new series regular role in the fifth season of Supergirl for CW.

Staz will play hardened reporter William Dey, an original character created for the series. On the surface, he’s a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic.

He will make his debut during the season five premiere episode on Sunday 6th October at 9/8c on CW.
