The CW network has plans to move forward with ordering pilots for three new television series. Based on the DC Comics’ character, Green Arrow, the series “Arrow” is one of the pilots ordered. Greg Berlanti is one of the individuals tied to the project, so this show may have potential. Berlanti has produced such shows like “Dawson’s Creek”, “Everwood”, “Brother & Sisters”, and more recently he co-wrote the DC Comics’ movie adaptation of “Green Lantern” starring Ryan Reynolds and he also directed the film “Life as We Know It” starring Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl. Seems like “Arrow” might be try to capitalize on the success of “Smallville” which had its series finale in 2011. Although the CW tried to bring “Aquaman” to the network, but the show never made it to air. Although the pilot episode is still available on iTunes. Justin Hartley was the lead in “Aquaman”, but when the pilot fell through he later starred as Green Arrow aka Oliver Queen and became a regular cast member on “Smallville”. However, according to Entertainment Weekly, Hartley is not being courted nor will be tied to the new series.
