If You Like a Little Sci-Fi With Your Family Drama, Raising Dion Will Be Right Up Your Alley
If it’s not enough that Hollwood rising star Michael B. Jordan has a co-starring role in this series, then the premise will probably do the trick to peak your interest. Netflix’s Raising Dion is based on a short film and comic book created by Dennis Liu in 2015 and follows a mother’s journey as she navigates the world, trying to protect her son who posseses an array of super powers. Though the show has obvious elements of fantasy, the realistic side of motherhood and dealing with her son’s special abilities takes center stage.
