'Black Lightning'

The CW is getting in on the action.

Following the Big Four, the younger-skewing network on Thursday released full-length trailers for its new series.

The CW has three dramas up to bat for the 2017-18 season, including DC Entertainment entry Black Lightning, a reboot of primetime soap Dynasty and the military drama Valor.

On the lighter side, the network has Life Sentence, starring Lucy Hale in her first post-Pretty Little Liars role.

Watch the full trailers below.


A modern take on the classic soap that follows two of America's wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children. The series centers on two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington (Grant Show), and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley), a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class. The drama also promises to expose "the dark underbelly" of the one percent: a corrupt world built on backroom deals, betrayal and, in some cases, murder.


The boundaries between military discipline and human desire are tested at a U.S. Army base that houses an elite unit of helicopter pilots trained to perform clandestine international and domestic missions. The drama unfolds in the present as well as in flashbacks to a failed mission involving one of the first female pilots in the unit, ultimately uncovering layers of personal and government/military secrets and leading to a seasonlong plan to rescue a group of MIA soldiers.

Black Lightning

Cress Williams stars as Jefferson Pierce, the hero who hung up his suit and his secret identity years ago. But with a daughter hell-bent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.

Life Sentence

The light hourlong centers on a young woman (Hale) who, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, finds out that she's not dying after all and has to learn to live with the choices she made when she decided to "live like she was dying."
