"Raising Dion" is the brainchild of commercial and music video director Dennis Liu, who created the comic book and directed the short film, which became a viral sensation. The series follows the story of a woman named Nicole Warren (Alisha Wainwright), who raises her son Dion Warren (Ja'Siah Young) after the death of her husband Mark Warren (Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several magical, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son's gifts secret with the help of Mark's best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.
