The CW Picks Up Black Lightning Pilot From Greg Berlanti
Cress Williams Set as 'Black Lightning' for The CW's Greg Berlanti DC Drama | Hollywood Reporter
The CW has found its Black Lightning hero in a familiar face.
Hart of Dixie alum Cress Williams will return to the network with the starring role in Greg Berlanti's latest DC Comics drama Black Lightning, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The drama, originally developed at Fox but ordered to pilot at CW, revolves around Jefferson Pierce (Williams), who made a choice to hang up his suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter hell-bent 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.
I know when it was originally announced for Fox, they said it wouldn't be a part of the Arrowverse. Wonder if that changed with the move to CW.That might actually be my favorite CW DC (not sure if he's technically Arrowverse as of yet, although I would guess he will be) costume.
