‘Arrow’ Producer Greg Berlanti Developing a ‘Black Lightning’ Live-Action Series

Today, Deadline is reporting that DCTV guru Greg Berlanti is in the works on developing yet another DC Comics character for television. According to the site the Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow producer along with Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil is hard at work to develop Black Lightning into a live-action series.
