It seems as if the king of the DC televsion universe, Greg Berlanti is back at once again. This time he is linking up with creator of The Game and Being Mary Jane, Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil to bring another DC Comics character to life and to the television screen in Black Lightning.
The story is written by the Akils where Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce who made the choice to hang up his superhero suit and secret identity many years ago. But that changes when his daughter becomes hell-bent on justice and a star student gets actively recruited by a local gang, Pierce plunges back into the fold as the wanted vigilante and legend Black Lightning.
The project is currently being shopped around to various networks. How potentially amazing would it be to see a Berlanti DC television property become a NETFLIX exclusive?
