Lamon Archey sees All American as a prime example of television shows focused on urban issues. As a guest role in season two, it became a surprise when the producers announced his character, Superintendent D’Angelo Carter, would be a series regular in season three. Even if it means to play a quasi-villain with good intentions.

Season two left off after Spencer James discovered his hold high school South Crenshaw had plans to convert into a magnate school with full integration. Due to this educational move, the high school may drop the football program altogether. Thus, it forced James to transfer back to his old high school to fight for his father’s and school’s legacy. As for D’Angelo Carter, mystery surrounds his intentions for the high school conversion as the community protests his actions.

The cast includes Daniel Ezra, Samantha Logan, Michael Evans Behling, Taye Diggs, and Greta Onieogou.

Here’s the basic synopsis of the show:

Spencer James is a rising high school football player and an A-student at South Crenshaw High, but when coach Billy Baker recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince him it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Bill’s son Jordan, who is also the starting quarterback, is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention—or the team spotlight. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, who is struggling with her own demons.
