Warner Bros. has been making strides to in the digital content world. To the extent that they created a studio dedicated to digital programming. Dubbed Blue Ribbon Content, the studio released a slate of shows that will be making their debut. One of which will no doubt catch the eye of many.

A live action Static Shock show. Here’s the official word on the series via

“Static Shock — Writer/producer/director Reginald Hudlin (Best Picture Oscar nominee for producing Django Unchained) leads the creative team behind a live-action adaptation of Static Shock, featuring the African-American super hero Static, aka Virgil Ovid Hawkins. Static Shock is based on the Static comic co-created by the late Dwayne McDuffie with co-writer Robert L. Washington III and artist John Paul Leon, which was originally published by the DC Comics imprint Milestone Comics and, later, by DC Comics. Milestone Media co-founder/comic book artist/TV producer Denys Cowan (the original Static Shock animated series) is collaborating with Hudlin on the new Static Shock.”
To add to the credibility of this, Blue Ribbon Content is headed up by Sam Register, who is the founder of Cartoon Network. He also worked on Teen Titans, Young Justice, Beware the Batman, and a lot more. DC is clearly taking this seriously. As they should!
