Roughly two years ago I talked about a series headed to Netflix based on a comic book named, Raising Dion. Well, today Netflix finally dropped the trailer on us and OH MY GOD!!! So let me stop wasting your time and let’s check this thing out, shall we?
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.
The nine-episode series of Raising Dion is set to release next month Oct 4th. Now if you’ll excuse me. I need to go clear my calendar.
