Green Arrow may land new TV series on CW

The Green Arrow could be headed to TV. As Deadline reports, the CW is close to a deal to bring the DC Comics hero to official pre-production stages for a pilot and then an hourlong superhero drama.

The Green Lantern co-writers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim and Fringe and Vampire Diaries alum Andrew Kreisberg are the creative minds behind the initiative with David Nutter (who has a long resume including Entourage, X-Files, and the film Disturbing Behavior) to helm the series.

Arrow would be produced by Warner Bros TV and Berlanti’s studio-based Berlanti Television, was developed by Berlanti and Guggenheim, who came up with the idea and wrote the storyline and then brought in Kreisberg to write the script. Kreisberg, who has comics experience having written DC Comics’ Green Arrow and Black Canary among other books, previously worked with Berlanti and Guggenheim on their ABC drama Eli Stone. – Source Deadline report.

Green Arrow is a superhero dressed like Robin Hood, an archer who uses trick arrows to battle criminals. His secret identity is billionaire Oliver Queen and the character was a popular regular on Smallville for several seasons.
