Comic book creator Dennis Liu’s 2015 release, Raising Dion, finally comes to life with the first official trailer and poster for the new Netflix series. Carol Barbee created and serves as exec producer with Liu, and with co-star Michael B. Jordan for the new nine-episode fantasy drama streaming on October 4.
Raising Dion follows the story of a woman named Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), who raises her son Dion (newcomer Ja’Siah Young) after the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several mysterious, 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.
Seith Mann directed the pilot. Peep the trailer above and poster below!
