The CW television network is bringing the comic book hero “The Flash” onto its fantasy-laden schedule, along with a soap opera about a virgin who is artificially inseminated by accident.
The series about a superhero who moves about with lightning speed will air Tuesday nights, one of only two new series the CW is introducing in the fall.
The other, “Jane the Virgin,” is a telenovela adaptation about a young woman obsessed with telenovelas whose life takes on some theatrical complications. Through a doctor’s mistake, she’s inseminated with a specimen from a playboy donor.
CW President Mark Pedowitz also said Thursday he’s trying again to make a “Supernatural” spinoff.
