Spencer Paysinger All American – Spencer Paysinger Story
‘All American’ is an American sports drama that airs on The CW and Netflix and is loosely based on a true story. It is inspired by the life of Spencer Paysinger. He also serves as a consulting producer in the TV series.
The series producer Robbie Rogers told ESPN; “It’s a real story, it’s inspired by a true story, and so it’s good to put a face to that story. Hearing it from Spencer himself was very important.”
Spencer told ESPN that the process for “All American” began in 2015, when one of his friends, former NFL tight end Schuylar Oordt, introduced him to his roommate, Morck, who at that point was still trying to find himself as a producer. He kept sharing his stories along the year, he soon got a call from Morck’s childhood friend, Rogers, a producer and former professional soccer player whose fiancé at the time was Berlanti, one of the biggest TV producers in Hollywood.
He later met with Roth, the chief executive at Warner Bros., and they began writing treatments about the struggles he faced. The CW bought the rights in the second meeting. They found a director, Rob Hardy, and a writer, April Blair. They identified a premise — “an outsider in two worlds” — and assembled a cast and crew. By April 2018, they shot the pilot.
His character is played by Ezra whose character name is Spencer James, he is a star wide receiver who finds a coach (Billy Baker, played by Diggs) who gets him into Beverly Hills High, igniting turmoil.
Spencer said his main aim was to shatter stereotypes of the inner city.
“I wanted to tell the story of, ‘We’re a lot more similar on these different sides of the track than you guys think. Being from South Central, and knowing how South Central is portrayed in Hollywood as this desolate area with gang violence, drugs, everything — they have to realize that the sun shines there as long as it shines in Beverly Hills. The one thing I want the viewers to see is South Central is also a beautiful place. It’s a wonderful place. It’s a place that I call home to this day. I think we’ve been able to do that.”
