Spencer James (Ezra) is a rising high school football player and “A” student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place e calls home. But when Beverly High School’s football coach Billy Baker (Diggs) recruits him to join his team in Beverly hills, Spencer’s mother Grace (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 neighbourhood that 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 (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 (Logan), who is dealing with her own demons.
He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla (Onieogou), something her boyfriend, Asher (Christian), quickly realises – and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good.
Inspired by the life of U.S. pro football player Spencer Paysinger, produced by Berlanti Productions and written by April Blair, ALL AMERICAN is a show about two families from vastly different worlds, each with their own wins, losses and struggles.
