“Ballers” and “Acrimony” actress Jazmyn Simon is set as a series regular opposite Jason Ritter and Michael B. Jordan in the sci-fi family drama series “Raising Dion” for Netflix.
The story follows a woman named Nicole Reese, who raises her son Dion after the death of her husband Mark (Jordan). Her single mother issues 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 (Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities. Simon will play Kat, a surgical resident and Nicole’s sister who often corrects Nicole on her life and parenting.
The project comes from Jordan, Dennis Liu, Carol Barbee, Kenny Goodman, Michael Green, and Charles D. King will produce.
