What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network, Black Lightning stars Cress Williams, Nafessa Williams, China Anne McClain, James Remar, Damon Gupton, Christine Adams, and Marvin Jones III. The DC Comics 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. Crime and corruption are running amok, now that The One Hundred — a dangerous gang — has the city it is grasp. Endowed with the amazing ability to harness and control electricity, Black Lightning jumps back into action. Now the community stands a fighting chance, but at what cost to his family?
