Trailer Released For The CW's Upcoming Football/Culture-Clash Drama, 'All American'

At its upfront presentation on Thursday, May 17, The CW premiered the trailers for its Charmed reboot and new series All American.

Headlined by Daniel Ezra, it also stars Taye Diggs, Bre-Z, Greta Onieogou and Karimah Westbrook. The high school drama is based on the life of NFL player Spencer Paysinger. It hails from super producer Greg Berlanti and is created by April Blair.

Here's the official description: Spencer James 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 recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, 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 (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, who is dealing with her own demons. He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla, something her boyfriend, Asher, quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good.
