(Welcome to ...And More, our no-frills, zero B.S. guide to when and where you can watch upcoming movies and shows, and everything else you could possibly stand to know.)

Greg Berlanti may not be as big of a name as Marvel's Kevin Feige in many circles, but he has asserted himself as one of the most prolific producers ever, particularly for his work on TV. The man has a record number of shows on the air, and he is showing no signs of slowing down. Case in point, the man is now bringing yet another new show to TV this year in the form of "All American: Homecoming," turning one of his already successful shows into a franchise. Berlanti is a golden goose in the era of peak TV if ever there were such a thing.

All American: Homecoming Trailer and Synopsis

The CW has released a teaser trailer for "All American: Homecoming," which we've included above for you to check out. Additionally, we have a very detailed and pretty lengthy plot synopsis that you can read below to give you a better overview of the show.

ALL AMERICAN: HOMECOMING is a young adult sports drama set against the backdrop of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) experience at Bringston University, where Black excellence is a way of life. The series follows Simone (Geffri Maya, "All American"), a young tennis hopeful from Beverly Hills who is trying to fight her way back to great after some time away from the court, and Damon (Peyton Alex Smith, "Legacies"), an elite baseball player from Chicago who is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. After Simone's aunt Amara Patterson (Kelly Jenrette, "Manhunt"), a journalism teacher and activist, exposes a scandal that threatens to derail the school's beloved baseball program, new coach Marcus Turner (Cory Hardrict, "The Outpost") is determined to bring a championship back to Bringston the honest way — with Damon's help. Damon will adjust to his new normal with fellow baseball player and childhood friend JR (Sylvester Powell, "Five Points") by his side. Meanwhile, as Simone struggles to find her footing, she will get a little guidance from Thea (Camille Hyde, "Katy Keene"), the super-competitive queen bee of the Bringston tennis team, and Keisha (Netta Walker, "Come as You Are"), the school's unofficial mayor, who will help Simone learn how to live her best life. As they contend with the high stakes of college sports, Simone and Damon will also navigate the highs, lows, and sexiness of unsupervised early adulthood at a prestigious HBCU.
