The first trailer for Black Lightning, recently ordered to series for The CW (see “Three Comic-Based Shows Picked Up For Series”), has been released in conjunction with the upfronts. 

Some additional news on the show has also been released.  Black Lightning does not take place in the same universe as the other CW DC-based shows such as Arrow and Flash, CW Chief Mark Podesta said Thursday, as quoted by EW.  Logistical difficulties may be the primary reason:  Black Lightning shoots in Atlanta while the other CW DC shows shoot in Vancouver, and Black Lightning will not premiere until mid-season.
