A new series that has a 10-episode order at Netflix twists the superhero genre, focusing on what it’s like for a mom who’s trying to raise a young son with superpowers.
The project, “Raising Dion,” is based on a comic book and short film by Dennis Liu.
Carol Barbee, who most recently served as executive producer on the 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 Barbee 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”).
