DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, October 2017) Netflix, the world's leading Internet entertainment service, has ordered a 10-episode season of the one-hour sci-fi, family drama, Raising Dion, based on a short film about an African-American single mother who discovers her young son has multiple, constantly changing abilities. Raising Dion is the brainchild of commercial and music video director Dennis Liu, who created the comic book and directed the short film, which became a viral sensation. Carol Barbee, who most recently served as executive producer on the popular and acclaimed series UnREAL and whose credits also include Judging Amy, Jericho, and Touch, will serve as showrunner/executive producer and wrote the script for episode one, which Liu will direct. Joining her and Liu as executive producers are Michael B. Jordan, through his Outlier Society Productions, who will also appear in the series; MACRO's Charles D. King, Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks; Kenny Goodman; and Michael Green (Logan, American Gods). Raising Dion is a Netflix production. The series follows the story of a woman named Nicole Reese, who raises her son Dion after the death of her husband Mark (Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several magical, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son's gifts secret with the help of Mark's best friend Pat, and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities. The ten-episode series will premiere on Netflix in more than 190 countries around the world.
