Michael B. Jordan Will Be ‘Raising Dion’.

Netflix is doubling down on the superhero genre and they’re looking to tell original stories outside of their Marvel Netflix shows.  However, they’re turning to a Marvel Studios actor to spearhead their latest project.  Michael B. Jordan will co-star and executive produce a 10-episode series titled Raising Dion.The series will be based on a 2015 short film of the same name, which you can check out below.This short was created by music video director Dennis Liu (Sia – You’ve Changed, Justin Timberlake – Not A Bad Thing) who provided an official statement in a press release.

I started this project many years ago because I wanted to see more diverse representation on film and television and I’m excited to partner with Netflix and MACRO, who I know shares that commitment. More than ever, we need more stories told from different points of view and my hope with Raising Dion is to create a cinematic experience for all families that will lift your spirits and make you laugh and cry.
