Watch the trailer above for American Son, the Netflix movie adaptation of the Broadway play starring three-time Emmy nominee Kerry Washington, Broadway alum Steven Pasquale, Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan, and theatre veteran Eugene Lee. All four reprise their roles from the Main Stem production. The film is set to premiere on the streaming service November 1.
Kenny Leon returns to direct after helming Christopher Demos-Brown’s play at Booth Theatre last season. American Son is set in the middle of the night at a Miami police station as a separated, interracial couple reunites and grapples with the disappearance of their teenage son.
The trailer premiered during the 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards; the September 22 ceremony saw such Broadway veterans as Billy Porter and Michelle Williams earning their first trophies from television's biggest night.
