Check out the trailer for the new series from The CW, Tom Swift, which stars Tian Richards as the title character – a gay, Black, billionaire genius.

The character was introduced in a season 2 episode of The CW’s Nancy Drew, but the new trailer adds much more background about the glamorous (and mysterious) life of Tom Swift.

From EW:

Described as a “devilishly charming” inventor with “unlimited resources and unimaginable wealth,” Tom is someone who many men would kill to be, or be with.

But his entire world gets turned upside down when his father mysteriously disappears, and he’ll stop at nothing to discover the truth of what happened.

Tom finds himself thrust into a breathtaking adventure full of conspiracies and unexplained phenomena as he fights to stay one step ahead of an Illuminati-scale cabal hellbent on stopping him.

Tom Swift premieres Tuesday, May 31, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
