Netflix has released the first trailer for Raising Dion, the superhero family drama series executive produced by Michael B. Jordan.
The series stars Ja’Siah Young, Alisha Wainwright, Jason Ritter, Jazmyn Simon and Jordan.
Based on Dennis Liu’s comic book and viral short film of the same name which revolves around a Black mother who discovers her young son has multiple and continually changing abilities, Raising Dion follows the story of Nicole Reese who raises her son, Dion, after the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan). The usual dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion manifests several magical, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend, Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.
The series, which has a season order for 10 episodes, debuts on October 4.
