“Arrow”-verse alum David Ramsey is attached to reprise his role of John Diggle in “Justice U,” a DC Comics-inspired drama series currently in development for The CW.
In the series Diggle embarks on a new mission to recruit five young meta humans (based on characters from the DC pantheon) to live undercover as freshmen at a prestigious university.
Diggle will oversee their education and train them to become the heroes of tomorrow. Michael Narducci and Zoanne Clack are attached to write and executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden also executive producing.
Ramsey not only has the starring role, but is attached to direct the potential pilot of the series. He has also signed an overall directing deal with Berlanti Productions that will see him both direct and guest star in more episodes of multiple series across the Arrowverse.
Ramsey served as a regular on “Arrow” for eight seasons through to its end in 2020. Since then he’s barely left the Arrow-verse as in the past year or so he’s guested twice on “Batwoman,” and once each on “Superman and Lois,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”. He’s also directed recent episodes of all those shows except “The Flash”.
