Actor Jason Ritter has joined the cast of Netflix's upcoming Michael B. Jordan-produced family superhero drama Raising Dion, according to Deadline.
Raising Dion tells the story of a young black mother raising a child, Dion, who has ever-changing super powers. Raising Dion is based on a short film by creator Dennis Liu, which Liu and artist Jason Piperberg later expanded into a comic book.
Ritter will reportedly portray Pat, a scientist who was the best friend and co-worker of Dion's father and who will help the family cope with the threats that face them as the Dion's powers continue to grow.
No premiere date for Raising Dion's 10-episode inaugural season has been announced.
