Comprising six episodes, this adaptation of the eponymous Walter Mosley book, by Mosley himself, will see Samuel L. Jackson embody Ptolemy Grey, a sick man neglected by his family and friends. When Reggie, his faithful nephew who was watching over him, suddenly disappears, Ptolemy is about to sink even more into insanity and loneliness. Robyn, a young orphan played by Dominique Fishback (Judas and the Black Messiah) is then designated to take care of Ptolemy. When they hear about a treatment that could help Ptolemy regain his memory, lost due to the illness, they begin a journey that will lead them to reveal painful truths, whether they belong to the past, present or future. ..
The rest of the cast also includes Cynthia Kaye McWilliams (Bosch), Damon Gupton (Black Lightning), Marsha Stephanie Blake (When They See Us), Walton Goggins (Justified) and Omar Miller (Ballers).
