The Streaming Wars are nearly upon us, and while Netflix is still going with its quantity over quality model, this looks like it could be one of its best scripted shows.
Executive produced by and starring Michael B. Jordan, the show adapts Dennis Liu's comic book series, about a woman named Nicole (Alisha Wainwright) trying to raise her superpowered son after her husband dies. Jordan plays the boy's late father in flashbacks, and soon Nicole discovers that the government wants to track down Dion and other people with powers across the country.
Seith Mann, who's directed episodes of everything from The Walking Dead to Grey's Anatomy helmed the first episode, and the show's cast includes Jason Ritter (Kevin Saves the World), Jazmyn Simon (Ballers), with newcomers Ja'Siah Young and Sammi Haney as Dion and his best friend Esperanza, respectively.
All 10 episodes drop on Netflix on October 4.
