The CW releases a new trio of All American TV spots
The high school football drama All American has three new TV spots to get you hyped on The CW’s new series. The first, “Unstoppable” gives some backstory to lead character Spencer James, played by Daniel Ezra (Prime Suspect 1973). The second is an extended version of that trailer that shows a bit more of Spencer’s backstory and how his life will change. The third, “The Path,” hints at the choices Spencer will have to make when faced with these changes. You can see all three trailers below.
All American also stars, Taye Diggs (Empire), Briana Lane (NCIS), and Jordan Belfi (Entourage) and premieres Wednesday, October 10 on The CW.
Spencer James (Ezra) is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly High School’s football coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) recruits him to join the team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace (Karimah Westbrook), and his best friend, Coop (Bre-Z), convince Spencer it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Now Spencer must navigate two worlds — the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger. When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Billy’s son Jordan (Michael Evans Behling), the team’s starting quarterback, is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention — or the team spotlight — with Spencer. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, Olivia (Samantha Logan), who is dealing with her own demons. He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla (Greta Onieogou), something her boyfriend, Asher (Cody Christian), quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good.
Inspired by the life of NFL player Spencer Paysinger, All American is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios in association with Berlanti Productions, with executive producers April Blair (Reign), Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
