Cast Call

 

 

The show is part of CW’s lineup that includes other CW comic based shows Supergirl, Arrow and The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow in this year’s lineup.

 

 

Cress Williams plays Jefferson Pierce also known as Black Lightning and Christine Adams stars opposite Cress Williams as Lynn Pierce.

Originally, the show looked like it would land on FOX but according to Deadline, that deal fell and the series ended up on the CW Network. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are named as executive producers on “Black Lightning” with husband / wife team of Salim and Mara Brock Akil writing for the show, or at least that is what last seasons line-up was.

The show is set to be in production from around this time all the way to January of 2019.
