Earlier this year, we reported that The CW was planning to have a television series based on the DC Comics character, Green Arrow. The network ordered a pilot, and has now officially picked up the series for the 2012-2013 season.
The show has been simply titled "Arrow," and will star Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen (pictured above), a man turned vigilante. Here's a synopsis from TVLine:
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.
The series will be executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter. David Nutter directed the pilot episode, written by producers Kreisberg & Guggenheim.
