Netflix released the first trailer for its latest drama in the superpowered genre with “Raising Dion,” which sees a single mother team with up her late husband’s best friend to protect their increasingly-superpowered son.

The series is executive produced by Michael B. Jordan, who also co-stars alongside Alisha Wainwright, Ja’Siah Young and Jason Ritter.

Watch the video above.

“Raising Dion” is based on the comic book of the same name written by commercial and music video director Dennis Liu, who will direct the first episode. Carol Barbee, who was most recently an executive producer on the former Lifetime series “UnREAL,” will serve as showrunner and executive producer. MACRO’s Charles D. King, Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks will also be executive producing, along with Kenny Goodman and Michael Green.

Here is the logline of the series from Netflix:

“Raising Dion” follows the story of a woman named Nicole (Wainwright), who raises her son Dion (Young) after the death of her husband, Mark (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 (Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.

“Raising Dion” premieres on Friday, Oct. 4 on Netflix.
