BLACK LIGHTNING is The CW’s latest series based on a D.C. Comics property. The new Tuesday-night drama shares an executive producer, Greg Berlanti, with the other D.C. adaptations, but BLACK LIGHTNING, developed for television by Berlanti’s fellow executive producers Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil, has two notable differences. All but one of the protagonists are African-American and most of the main characters are adults in early middle age. Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a beloved high school principal in the city of Freeland. Nine years ago, Jefferson left behind his electricity-shooting superhero alter ego Black Lightning in an effort […]Read On »

RIVERDALE, in its freshman season on the CW Thursday nights, has been adapted from the famous ARCHIE comics by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Executive-produced by Greg Berlanti (who is also behind The CW’s DC superhero universe shows), RIVERDALE is a lot darker than its source material. Archie Andrews (played by K.J. Apa), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse) and their high school classmates live in a world of secrets, lies, blackmail and murder. Mädchen Amick, who plays Betty’s mom Alice, knows something about playing characters who live in just that kind of small town – she […]Read On »

THE FLASH begins its third season on The CW Tuesday, October 4. Since the Flash, aka Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), just altered the past in the second-season finale to save his mother, there’s no telling what the present will be like. This includes Barry’s relationship with his erstwhile foster father, Central City police detective Joe West, played by Jesse L. Martin. Martin, originally from Virginia, is famous to Broadway theatergoers for his stint in the original cast of RENT; he reprised his role in the film version. Martin is probably best known to television viewers for playing another police detective, […]Read On »

Martin Gero created and is an executive producer on NBC’s BLINDSPOT, which begins its second season Wednesday, September 14. Last season, we were introduced to Jaimie Alexander’s character Jane Doe, an amnesiac covered neck to toes in elaborate tattoos, all interlinked but each with their own secret, hinting at a criminal activity that must be stopped. The most prominent tattoo spells out “Kurt Weller,” which happens to be the name of an FBI agent played by Sullivan Stapleton. The producers promise that Jane Doe’s identity will be revealed almost immediately in Season 2 and that Archie Panjabi of THE GOOD […]Read On »

In SUPERGIRL, on CBS Mondays at 8 PM, our heroine in her alter ego of newspaper executive assistant Kara Danvers, played by Melissa Benoist, works in a pretty swanky-looking high-rise. However, Kara’s adoptive sister Alex Danvers, played by Chyler Leigh, has a much cooler workplace, the literally underground headquarters of the Department of Extranormal Operations, aka D.E.O. When CBS allows the Television Critics Association press tour to visit the SUPERGIRL sets, the huge soundstage, with faux cave walls and intricate technology stations, is thrilling to see. It may be make-believe, but it still looks pretty impressive. In the SUPERGIRL universe, […]Read On »

The third and final season of Starz’s DA VINCI’S DEMONS, Saturdays at 8 PM, sees Leonardo Da Vinci, still a relatively young man played by Tom Riley, making weapons of war to defend Italy from the Turks.

Goyer, who created DA VINCI’S DEMONS and is one of the executive producers, originally turned over the show-running reins for the third season to John Shiban because he was up to his eyebrows in other projects, including writing the screenplay for the much-anticipated BATMAN V. SUPERMAN and creating/running NBC’s CONSTANTINE, the TV series adaptation of D.C. Comics’ HELLBLAZER. However, as Goyer […]Read On »
