01/29/2018

Another casting call is out for the upcoming Black Lighting TV show.

The CW Network is looking at another comic book inspired TV series. The network has ordered a TV pilot for DC Comic’s Black Lightning and if the pilot gets picked up for series it will join other CW comic based shows Supergirl, Arrow and The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow in this year’s lineup. Seems that the show is now filming in the Atlanta area because new castings are now out.  The pilot filmed back in the spring and now it seems that the show is in production of season 1.

Black Lightning is filming the pilot in the Atlanta area and now casting folks that would love to work as paid extras on the “Black Lightning”  set this month.  Black Lightning” began filming on March 21st 2017 and will be in production into the fall months. Black Lightning is one of quite a few pilots and TV shows filming in the Atlanta area this spring.

Black Lightning”  is created by Greg Berlanti who has a relationship with the CW and has worked with the network on their other comic hero inspired shows,  Supergirl, Arrow and The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.

Cress Williams has been cast as Jefferson Pierce also known as Black Lightning and Christine Adams will play opposite Cress Williams as Lynn Pierce.

Originally, the show looked like it would land on FOX but according to Deadline, that deal fell through opening the door for CW to bring another Berlanti comic inspired TV series into the fold. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are named as executive producers on “Black Lightning” with husband / wife team of Salim and Mara Brock Akil writing for the show.
