The CW Network Considering The Flash Tv Series

Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW, spoke about the project today at the TCA Summer Tour saying: "We plan to introduce a reoccurring character and an origin story of Dr. Barry Allen, who as we now know is The Flash. We're planning an origin story, we'll see how it goes and hopefully it will go on." Check back here for further updates on the matter as we learn them. The original story follows.
Deadline is reporting that The CW is considering bringing another DC hero to television and it is none other than The Flash. The site says that Arrow writers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, would write the pilot based on the character. It is rumored that the character could make an appearance in the upcoming season of Arrow before running off into his own series. The CW is expected to talk more about the idea later today at their Television Critics Association panel.
The Flash isn't the only DC hero that The CW is considering for a TV series as a Wonder Woman show titled "Amazon" has been in development for over a year.



We also know that Arrow writers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns are writing a script for the pilot and that David Nutter, director of the Arrow pilot, could direct The Flash pilot.
A few more updates have come along since then (via Deadline) including word that the character is set to appear in the 8th or 9th episode in the upcoming season of Arrow, and casting is expected to begin this week.
"Barry Allen’s story always has been a favorite of mine," Berlanti said, "as well as of Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns. We wanted everyone to know about the show as that process commenced. We think it fits well both in terms of Arrow and as a stand-alone series."



Now, writers Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns, speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, have revealed even more details about the show.
"When we first meet Barry Allen, he's just a forensic scientist … an ordinary man," Kreisberg said. "Part of the fun for the audience … is to see how we view our Arrow take on the Flash legacy. Some of it will feel very familiar to DC Comics, some of it hopefully will feel different, fresh and exciting. The same way we approached Arrow is the same way we're approaching Barry."
The pair revealed that in addition to appearing in the 8th and 9th episodes of "Arrow," episode 20 in the new season will function as a "backdoor pilot" for the series and will focus primarily on Barry Allen.
The biggest surprise with this announcement has been that "Arrow" appears to be straying from their "No super powers" model that they adhered to for the first season. Kreisberg added, "There will be extraordinary events in the world and the characters will react in the same way."
Before you begin to type out that comment about how The Flash won't ever actually be in his costume and never be called "The Flash," Kreisberg says you have nothing to worry about. "No sweat suits or strange code names; he will be The Flash."
Casting is currently underway for the role.

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped.

Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
