Netflix to Carry Michael B. Jordan Superhero Show ‘Raising Dion’

Based on Dennis Liu’s short film and comic book of the same name, Raising Dion tells the story of a mother who discovers her son’s superpowers. Jordan is attached as an executive producer and will appear as Dion’s deceased father. It’s the latest in his attempts to break through into production on the small screen, and Raising Dion will contain 10 episodes.

The show focuses on Dion’s mother, Nicole Reese, as she raises her son. As you’d expect of a young kid with burgeoning superpowers, a number of groups attempt to exploit Dion’s abilities. Nicole attempts to protect him from these outside forces with the help of her husband’s friend, while also trying to hide her son’s new powers and deal with the struggles of being a single mother.

It’s an interesting take on a superhero show, and one Netflix is throwing considerable muscle behind. They will produce the series themselves and are set to distribute it in 190 countries. After a bit of turmoil behind the scenes, Raising Dion finally seems set and ready to go. Here’s hoping the show manages even some of the success of Netflix’s other superhero shows, both among fans and critics.

And if nothing else, it’s great to see how far my boy Wallace has come. Bonus points if you understood that reference. If not, go watch The Wire right now. I’ll wait.
