All American Trailer: The CW's Answer to Friday Night Lights?

at . Comments

All American looks like a show that was made for a premium cable network like HBO. 

The series does not look like The CW would usually air, and that's a good thing. 

All American 2

Of course, it has the adolescent teenagers, but it also has a string of exciting plots. 

The official logline reads:

When a rising high school football player from South Central L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, the wins, losses and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds — Compton and Beverly Hills — begin to collide. Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger.

All American

The cast includes Daniel Ezra, Taye Diggs, Samantha Logan, Bre-Z, Greta Onieogou, Monet Mazur, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian and  Karimah Westbrook. 

If you're a fan of either Friday Night Lights, The O.C. or 90210, then we're sure this show is going to be one of the ones you add to your watchlist this fall. 

It has been paired with Riverdale on Wednesdays, and that's a good move. Riverdale is the most compatible companion the CW could have offered.  

It's not often you can tell from a trailer whether a show is going to be a hit, but All American has a lot going for it. 

Watch the full trailer below and let me know what you think in the comments!

The CW Quotes

Betty: Why are you getting so upset? It's just a party, Jug.
Jughead: It's not just a party. It's the fact that you don't know, or even care, that this is the last thing I would want. You did this for you to prove something.
Betty: To prove what?
Jughead: You're a great girlfriend? I don't know. Doesn't it ever occur to you how different we are, like on a cellular DNA level? You're a straight-A student, a cheerleader. For God sakes, you're the perfect girl-next-door.
Betty: I hate that word.
Jughead: I'm the damaged, loner outsider from the wrong side of tracks. Betty, come on, who are we kidding?! We're on borrowed time.

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.
