CW18 is offering viewers who fumbled the premiere of ALL AMERICAN a chance to pick up the new drama series this Saturday night.
The new Taye Diggs starrer bowed on Wednesday, October 10th. The first two episodes of the football series, "Pilot" and "99 Problems," will air on a special day and time Saturday, October 20th, starting at 8pm on CW18 to give Milwaukee area viewers the opportunity to catch up before the season continues on Wednesday night. Veteran actor Diggs and rising star Daniel Ezra, lead the diverse cast as Coach Billy Baker and Spencer James, respectively.
Inspired by the real life story of NFL player Spencer Paysinger, ALL AMERICAN is a story of worlds colliding, dreaming big, and chasing aspirations. Spencer James is a rising high school football player and "A" student at South Crenshaw High. But when Beverly Hill High School's football coach Billy Baker recruits him to join his team, 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 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 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.
