Plot Synopsis

This reality series follows former NFL and MLB star Deion Sanders, as raises his family while guiding the future of Prime Prep Academy, the charter school he created to try to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in underserved areas. At home, Deion raises his five children -- Deion Jr., Deiondra, Shilo, Shedeur and Shelomi -- in a household that also includes his mother, her foster children and his aunt and uncle. At his school, Deion is a co-founder and football coach, where he was fired and rehired in October 2013, following an alleged assault. And when Deion gets overwhelmed, his girlfriend, producer and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds, who has two sons of her own, is there to help pick up the slack. DEION'S FAMILY PLAYBOOK returned with new episodes on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on OWN. Deion and the kids are sick and tired of commuting across town to get to school everyday, so Deion comes up with the perfect solution. He tells the family to pack their things because the Sanders are moving into a new home, but no one seems too eager about giving up the luxurious estate they've lived in...until now. Plus, Shilo and Shedeur attend Truth camp, a summertime program put on by a non-profit organization started by Deion to help get kids off of the streets by focusing on sports and academics. When the brothers see their humble camp quarters, they nearly throw a fit. Deion hopes that camp might have a positive impact of the boys' privileged attitudes. DEION'S FAMILY PLAYBOOK, the highest rated freshman docuseries in OWN history, returned with new episodes on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, immediately following an all-day marathon (10am-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "Connie Takes Charge," Tracey reunites Deion with her mother Jackie on live television; Florida and Shedeur try to sneak girls past Connie.
On Saturday, June 27, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, OWN premiered the Season 2 finale of DEION'S FAMILY PLAYBOOK, immediately following an all-day marathon (10am-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season ender, "Last Days of Prime Prep," Deion and his students brace for a potential shutdown. Eleven-year-old Bossy loves playing basketball at school, but Deion has been pushing his daughter too hard, taking all the fun out of the game for her. Older sister, Deiondra, steps in to remind Deion that she quit playing sports for the same reason and asks him to ease up on Bossy before she does the same. Will Deion Sanders heed her advice on athletics?
