What’s This TV Show About?
A The CW superhero drama, Black Lightning stars Cress Williams, Nafessa Williams, China Anne McClain, James Remar, Damon Gupton, Christine Adams, and Marvin Jones III. The CW superhero drama centers on Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams). While he once waged a vigilante war against crime — using the masked persona “Black Lightning”— Pierce retired years ago and now serves as the principal of a charter high school. Endowed with the amazing ability to harness and control electricity, Black Lightning jumped back into action when his city was overrun with crime and corruption. Now it stands a fighting chance, but his family may well pay the price.
