Terence Nance was born in Dallas, Texas in what was then referred to as the State-Thomas community. Nance learned personhood there. Nance’s first feature film, AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY, premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was released theatrically in 2013. In 2014, he was named a Guggenheim Fellow. 

In the summer of 2018, Terence’s television series RANDOM ACTS OF FLYNESS debuted on HBO to great critical acclaim and was renewed for a second season by the network. The New York Times hailed the show as “a striking dream vision of race” and “hypnotic, transporting and uncategorizable” adding that “it’s trying to disrupt and redisrupt your perceptions so that, finally, you can see.”  In the fall of 2018, it was announced that Nance was tapped to write and direct SPACE JAM 2, starring Lebron James.
