WATCH: Michael B. Jordan Set to Executive Produce Netflix Superhero Drama “Raising Dion”

Michael B Jordan is fresh off filming his role in 2018’s Black Panther and from the looks of it, he has his eye on running things behind the camera. Jordan is executive producing a new Netflix show called Raising Dion, based on a comic book and short film by Dennis Liu. The show is a drama about a boy named Dion that has superpowers and his widowed single mother that raises him. Dion’s father, played by Jordan himself, dies but his best friend helps Dion’s mother protect the gifted child from his own powers and those that would do him harm. The show has no release date and the initial order is for 10 episodes.
This is not Jordan’s first time producing. His Outlier Productions launched last year and currently has a first-look deal with Skydance Media. The company is executive producing another project with Moonlight co-writer Tarell Alvin McCraney and Oprah’s OWN. It makes sense that Jordan produces for the small screen given that many of his most memorable performances are from his days as a TV actor, including season 1 of The Wire and Friday Night Lights. In other news, Michael B. Jordan will be reprising his role as Adonis in Creed II. He will also star in a film called “Wrong Answer”, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, which will mark the fourth time Jordan has worked with Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler.
