Raising Dion Trailer

Netflix’s “Raising Dion” Gets First Trailer

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.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
