DC TV Podcasts SDCC ’17: Black Lightning Interviews

Black LightningBlack Lightning will be coming to The CW next year as Jefferson Pierce joins the network as the latest superhero for Warner Bros. TV. Black Lightning had a big presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con where cast and producers revealed what we can expect in the first season of the series. Black Lightning Podcast/DC TV Podcasts participated in the press room for Black Lightning this year where Chris Barnes (of The Flash Podcast) chatted with the cast at the round tables to get some new details about Season 1, including Cress Williams (Jefferson Pierce), Christine Adams (Lynn Pierce), Nafessa Williams (Anissa Pierce), and China Anne McClain (Jennifer Pierce).


“Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a New Orleans neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad. Choosing to help his city without using his superpowers, he watched his daughters Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClain) grow into strong young women, even though his marriage to their mother, Lynn (Christine Adams), suffered. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community. Based on the characters from DC, BLACK LIGHTNING is from Berlanti Productions and Akil Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Salim Akil & Mara Brock Akil (“Being Mary Jane,” “The Game,” “Girlfriends”), and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”). The Black Lightning character was created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden.”

Black Lightning Season 1 premieres in mid-season 2018 on The CW!
