    All-New DC Comics-Inspired WBTV Programming Lineup

    Gotham, iZombie, Constantine, More...

    Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), on behalf of Warner Bros. Television (WBTV) and DC Entertainment, is attending Licensing Expo 2014 with a powerhouse slate of primetime TV licensing offerings based on DC Comics’ and Vertigo’s pantheon of characters. Bringing fresh and innovative programming to fans, WBTV’s new DC Comics–based series The Flash, Gotham, Constantine and returning hit Arrow, along with new Vertigo-based series “iZOMBIE” will feature storylines and characters that will inspire an array of new products from licensing partners in every category.

    The all-new DC Comics-inspired WBTV programming lineup being showcased by WBCP during Licensing Expo 2014 includes:





    ARROW

    The #1 series on The CW among Total Viewers, “Arrow” is scheduled to return to television this fall for its third season. A one-hour drama based on DC Comics’ Green Arrow, the hit program is a domestic and international success, particularly with Men 18-34 and 18-49. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen comes home with a mysterious agenda and lethal new skills to fight crime in Starling City. Oliver 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. Among the licensees already supporting “Arrow” are master toy licensee Mattel, and global partners such as Rubie’s Costume Co. and Bioworld, among others.





    GOTHAM

    Before there was Batman, there was “Gotham.” The origin story of some of DC Comics greatest Super-Villains and vigilantes, this one hour drama follows the rise to power of Detective Jim Gordon (series star Ben McKenzie – “Southland”) in a dangerously corrupt city that would spawn iconic characters such as The Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler and a young Bruce Wayne. Coming to FOX Mondays 8/7c this fall, the “Gotham” pilot was written by Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and directed by Danny Cannon (“CSI” series, “Nikita”), both of whom serve as executive producers of the series along with John Stephens (“Gossip Girl,” “The O.C.”).





    THE FLASH

    Speeding to audiences on The CW Tuesdays 8/7c this fall, this lightning-paced super hero drama from the creative team behind the action hit “Arrow” follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. After an unexpected accident at a Particle Accelerator, police scientist and everyday guy Barry Allen (series star Grant Gustin – “Arrow”) finds himself suddenly charged with the ability to move at incredible speeds, which he uses to help the people of Central City. “The Flash” pilot was written by Greg Berlanti (“Arrow”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow”) and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, and was directed by David Nutter (“Arrow,” “Game of Thrones”).





    iZOMBIE

    Based on characters published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, “iZOMBIE” follows a medical resident turned zombie (Rose McIver – “Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) who works in a coroner’s office for access to the brains she must reluctantly eat, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she now solves homicides to quiet the voices in her head. This new one-hour drama from executive producers/writers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (both “Veronica Mars”) comes to The CW in midseason. Thomas & Ruggiero-Wright co-wrote the pilot, which Thomas directed, and they both serve as executive producers of the series along with Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (both “Veronica Mars”).





    CONSTANTINE

    Premiering Friday, October 24, at 10/9c on NBC, “Constantine” is a drama about DC Comics character John Constantine, is a man waging war against the forces of darkness. An irreverent con-man and occult expert, he doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil … but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond. “Constantine” is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) and David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight” trilogy). The pilot was directed by Neil Marshall (“The Descent”), with teleplay by Cerone and story by Cerone & Goyer.
