Justice U: David Ramsey-Led Arrowverse Series In Development at The CW

If you thought that there was more to David Ramsey's future with The CW's Arrowverse beyond guest appearances as John Diggle and directing episodes across nearly all of the series (with next week's Superman & Lois "The Ties That Bind" being another fine example), the network proved you right on Thursday. Ramsey's Diggle is set to headline the in-development Justice U. Set in the Arrowverse and after years of experience fighting side-by-side with some of the world's finest, Diggle embarks on a new mission to recruit five young metahumans to live undercover as freshmen at a prestigious university. There he will oversee their education and train them to become the heroes of tomorrow. Stemming from Michael Narducci (Superman & Lois) and Zoanne Clack (Grey's Anatomy), the series will see Ramsey direct the pilot if it's picked up for series. Produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, David Madden, and Geoff Johns will executive produce alongside Narducci and Clack.
