‘Black Lightning’ & ‘Life Sentence’ w/ Lucy Hale Picked Up By The CW | Deadline

Nellie Andreeva for deadline.com

The CW has picked up DC drama Black Lightning, from producer Greg Berlanti, and the Bill Lawrence-produced dramedy _Life Sentenc_e, starring Pretty Little Liars‘ Lucy Hale, to series. That brings the number of newly ordered CW series to four, including Dynasty and Valor — two each from sister studios CBS TV Studios (Dynasty, Valor) and Warner Bros. TV (Black Lightning, Life Sentence).

I'm thrilled with this. Sounds like it'll be a mid season show the way Legends was for its first season. Sounds good to me.
