‘Black Lightning’ TV Show Moves To The CW
We haven’t heard much about the Black Lightning project besides it wouldn’t be connected to the Arrowverse. Well it looks like thats changing.
According to Deadline, the upcoming Black Lightning television series, is moving from FOX over to The CW, Greg Berlanti’s spot for all of his other DC TV shows.
Written by the husband-and-wife duo of Akil and Brock Akil based on the DC character created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden, Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce. He made his choice: He hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter hellbent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.
Hopefully we will get some casting info soon. What do you guys think about this move? Let us know!
Akil and Brock Akil executive produce with Berlanti Prods.’ Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
