Produced by Warner Bros. Television and CBS Studios in association with Berlanti Productions, the series comprises showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll who is leading the team of executive producers, including Greg Berlanti, Jameal Turner, Sarah Schechter, Mike Herro and David Strauss. Their collaborative vision contributes to the success and longevity of All American, which has resonated with live viewership and a strong presence on digital platforms such as the CW app and Netflix.

Although the circumstances of Billy Baker’s return remain under wraps and is in shock to many, the anticipation of his comeback is palpable. So, fans of the series can look ahead to an exhilarating lineup, which will culminate in the milestone of the 100th episode that promises to be a memorable celebration of the show’s long-lasting legacy.

Diggs, who is from Newark, New Jersey, is best known for his lead roles in The Best Man franchise, as well as Brown Sugar, Malibu’s Most Wanted, among many other movies. He was also in TV shows such as New York Under Cover, Law & Order, among other shows.
