The CW Developing 'The Flash' Series


The hero that once padded CBS's lineup with ridiculous foam muscles may soon be returning to television, with Warner Bros. Television reportedly developing a Flash series for their CW network.

Arrow creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg will write and run the series, spinning it off from their current show with an episode that introduces the super-speed character and makes Oliver Queen realize that shooting arrows is kind of a joke power. CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters The Flash will focus on the Barry Allen version of the character and that the casting process is already underway. He added, "If we get a name, great, if we don't get a name, they'll become a name." Just as 1990's Flash star John Wesley Shipp is now a name, and you'll sometimes see it in a comic convention's "celebrities" section.
