The New American Son Trailer, Featurette and Key Art

-

Netflix has revealed the new American Son trailer and a behind-the-scenes look at the adaptation. You can also view the new key art for the November 1 release below.

Based on the acclaimed Broadway play, American Son tells the story of Kendra Ellis-Connor (Kerry Washington), the mother of a missing teenage boy, as she struggles to put the pieces together in a South Florida police station.

Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee also reprise their roles in the adaptation which presents four distinct viewpoints, while also navigating the unique dynamic of an interracial couple trying to raise a mixed-race son.

American Son is based on the 2018 play from playwright Christopher Demos-Brown. Tony award winner Kenny Leon returns to direct and produce, with Jeffrey Richards and Rebecca Gold serving as producers. Washington and her EVP Development and Production Pilar Savone also produce under Washington’s banner Simpson Street.

“American Son powerfully explores themes of family, love and identity,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content. “We are honored to work with Kerry Washington, Kenny Leon, Christopher Demos-Brown and the entire cast to bring this story from the Broadway stage to our members around the world.”
