Created by Oscar-winning screenwriter Terell Alvin McCraney ("Moonlight"), this new semi-autobiographical drama series revolves around a 14-year-old boy (Akili McDowell) from the South Florida projects who’s haunted by the death of his closest friend. He also feels responsible for finding a way to help his exhausted mother (Alana Arenas) climb out of poverty, a quest that forces him to decide between working the streets where he grew up or aspiring to a higher education that could deliver freedom. Phylicia Rashad also stars.
