Jason Ritter is still trying to save the world. TVLine reports the Kevin (Probably) Saves the World star has joined Netflix’s new TV show, Raising Dion.
Based on the Dennis Liu short film, the drama “centers on Nicole Reese, an African-American single mother who learns that her young son has several magical, superhero-like abilities following the death of her husband Mark (Fahrenheit 451‘s Michael B. Jordan).”
On Raising Dion, Ritter will play “Pat, a comic-book-reading scientist who worked with Mark. After his best friend’s death, the smart and successful Pat makes an effort to be there for Nicole and her son — and he shares a special bond with Dion, too.”
Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for Raising Dion.
