Well well well, a black-lead superhero show? We'll pre-order that!

According to a report from Deadline, DC TV mogul Greg Berlanti is teaming up with Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil to produce a Black Lightning series. Deadline provides a synopsis:

Written by the Akils, 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 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.


According to the report, the series is being pitched "to networks," but come on, it will end up on The CW like every Berlanti show does, which will be awesome, because it can then crossover with The Flash, Supergirl, and Arrow.

Superhero comics may be dead, but the DC TV-verse is alive and well.
