CW brings The Flash to Television, first to Arrow then to its own series
The CW and Warner Bros. has confirmed with us that a new series ‘The Flash’ will be airing on the network in the future. The news was first mentioned at the CW Television Critics Association’s (TCA) panel earlier today (Tuesday) when network president Mark Pedowitz announced a new pilot for DC Comic’s The Flash.
The Superhero will first appear on CW’s ‘Arrow‘ but it will quickly become an entirely new superhero series. The famous Justice League of America member is expected to draw quite the audience as Arrow co-creators/executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg team with director David Nutter when Falsh meets Arrow in season 2.
“We plan to introduce the recurring character of Barry Allen who is the Flash,” Pedowitz told reporters. “We’re planning an origin story and we’ll see how it goes. We do want to expand on DC Universe, and we felt this is a very organic way to get there.”
Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns are set to write the script. Berlanti and Kreisberg will serve as showrunners should Flash move forward.
‘Arrow’ returns to the CW on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 at 8pm
