During a two-hour conversation with the Paley Center, Greg Berlanti, producer of shows such as Supergirl, Blindspot, as well as The CW's Arrow and The Flash, sat down with Warner Bros TV's President and Chief Content Officer Peter Roth for a conversation about their work together.
When the fall TV schedule came up, Roth was very complimentary to Berlanti, saying, "For those of you that don't know, Greg is currently shepherding the #1 and #2 new series of the year. So thanks to my friend and protégé, we're having a very good year."
But while talking about those shows, referring to Supergirl and Blindspot, Roth also mentioned the upcoming fifth arrow in Berlanti's quiver, Legends of Tomorrow, which he said "we have very high hopes for on January the twenty-first," seemingly letting slip the premiere date: January 21, 2016 - for the new series.
January 21 would put it on a Thursday, spreading out the three shows sharing one universe onto three days: The Flash on Tuesday, Arrow on Wednesday, and Legends of Tomorrow on Thursday. Various stars and crew have said the three shows are "really one," in how they share their universe, so it's really like getting three hours of DC/CW action in consecutive days.
We've reached out to The CW for confirmation and comment, as ultimately the network - not the production company - makes such a call. We'll update when we hear back from The CW.
