Netflix, which has just announced a 10% price hike for its subscription plans, has ordered a ten-episode season of the hour-long drama “Raising Dion”.
The story is based on Dennis Liu’s short film and comic about an African-American single mother who discovers her young son has multiple, constantly-changing superhero-like abilities.
She must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of her husband’s best friend, and protect her son from those who wish to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.
Michael B. Jordan will executive produce and appear in the series as the kid’s late father. Carol Barbee (“Judging Amy,” “Jericho”) will serve as showrunner/executive producer. Check out the original short below.
