crisis on earth x crossover arrowverse

The CW has released the official descriptions for the four-part "Crisis on Earth-X" crossover set to air in three weeks across Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

The crossover, which last year marked The CW's highest-rated week of programming in years, sees the full breadth of The CW's DC superhero cast teaming up, this time to battle an incursion from Earth-X, an alternate timeline in which Nazis won World War II.

You can check out the official synopses below; they are all materially the same, and provide little new information, except the names of the writers and directors of individual crossover episodes.
