Here is a little snippet CW released about the new Green Arrow series. (I read about it on GreenArrowTV.com)
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.
How awesome is that?? —–>Rhetorical… That is beyond awesome!
- Last year – I posted a ploy on my blog urging TV execs to get a Green Arrow series in the works.
- February – News came down that the CW network gave the green light for a Green Arrow pilot called Arrow.
- Now – Arrow has officially been picked up for the 2012 fall season.
With the unprecedented success of Marvel’s “Avengers” this past weekend, and two huge summer blockbusters still looming with The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises. For fan-boys everywhere, this news couldn’t have dropped at a better time.
More so now than ever, people will be looking to sink their teeth into comic related material, and I’m certain that Arrow will deliver.
