Who is all american based on in real life: There are only a few seconds left of the fourth quarter, and it’s tied. South Crenshaw High School superstar Spencer James convinces the quarterback to signal an audible. The smart, perceptive move is rewarded. The quarterback gives the ball to Spencer, who jumps until he reaches the end zone, winning. The crowd goes wild. The player’s party. A series of gunshots ring out. Everyone is in a state of panic, a normal reaction, but not panic as the car accelerates by firing its shots.
It’s the opening of the CW’s new drama for high school students called All American. The show is based on retired NFL athlete Spencer Paysinger’s childhood living in South Central, Los Angeles, before crossing two worlds during his time at Beverly Hills High School and eventually making it to the top of the league and winning a Super Bowl ring.
When he was just 11, an old team was celebrating its victory in Van Ness Park, the same place that was featured on the cover of All American. The youngsters were in high spirits. The parents on the sidelines were cheering. Moms of the team began handing out snacks and candy. After that, gunshots were heard. Paysinger’s mother was sure that all was safe and began walking him back home. The couple walked away from the park and came across dead bodies on the street.
There are three different worlds which each offer reliable and tried-and-true Hollywood sources but are often diminished to clichés. They are the superficial Americana associated with college football, The luxury and wealth that is Beverly Hills, and the apparent squalor of South Central. All American attempts to rebuild these worlds and tear off the barriers between the two, with hints of reality that are based on Paysinger’s personal experience.
