When Netflix dropped Luke Cage many were excited to see a black superhero on the small screen. Well, the lover of comic series will have to look no further as The CW has picked up Black Lightning for 2017-2018 schedule. It was originally bing developed at Fox but has now found a new home. And gets the deets, it was written by Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil. That is the lady who brought us Girlfriends, The Game and Being Mary Jane. Can’t wait to see it and hopefully it will make it pass the trenches of pilot season.
