Netflix’s new nine-hour miniseries RAISING DION follows a mother who sets out to solve the mystery surrounding her young son’s emerging superpowers while keeping his extraordinary gifts under wraps.


Based on the comic by Dennis Liu who also co-directs, RAISING DION is the story of Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), a young mom who raises her son Dion (newcomer Ja’Siah Young) after the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several mysterious, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.

RAISING DION launches October 4, only on Netflix.
