Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a New Orleans neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad.

Liking the look of this. It's confirmed it's NOT in the Arrowverse, but a world of it's own.

I like he's an older man, with two adult daughters (Who are hopefully heading towards becoming Thunder and Lightning themselves)

I recently completed a reading project on pre-Outsiders Black Lightning for anyone who's interested.

The trailer looks like a trailer to me. There's potential for the show to be both good and bad. We'll see what happens.
