Netflix has given Raising Dion a 10-episode straight-to-series order. The hour long sci-fi, family drama is based on commercial and music video director Dennis Liu's short film about an African-American single mother who discovers her young son has multiple, constantly changing abilities.

"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, who I know shares that commitment," Liu said. "More than ever, we need more stories told from different points of view and my hope withRaising Dion is to create a cinematic experience for all families that will lift your spirits and make you laugh and cry."

Actor Michael B. Jordan will have a supporting role in the series, while veteran showrunner Carol Barbee wrote the adaptation.
