Netflix has ordered a series based on the Dennis Liu short film and comic book 'Raising Dion'.

It's about a seven-year-old called Dion who discovers a talent for telekinesis after his father dies. Dion's mother then realises they're being followed by a mysterious group of men in suits...

The series will be executive produced by Michael B Jordan ('Creed'), who will also appear in the show.

According to Netflix, it's an entirely new type of superhero concept.

"We haven’t seen this type of superhero story before – an origin myth full of imagination, wonder and adventure, all grounded in the experiences of a modern single mother,” said Cindy Holland, Netflix’s VP of original content.

The series has been in the works for over a year already. It will be produced in-house at Netflix.

No release date has yet been set.
