The CW has decided to give Ava DuVernay’s Naomi series a series order.
Naomi follows a teen girl’s journey from her small northwestern town to the heights of the Multiverse. When a supernatural event shakes her hometown to the core, Naomi sets out to uncover its origins, and what she discovers will challenge everything we believe about our heroes.
Kaci Walfall stars as the title character alongside Cranston Johnson, Alexander Wraith, Mary-Charles Jones, Barry Watson, Mouzam Makkar, Daniel Puig, Camila Moreno, Will Meyers, and Aidan Gemme star.
In the source material, Naomi McDuffie is a teenage superhero from an alternate Earth that uses energy-based powers mononymously as Naomi. She discovered that she was sent to this Earth to be preserved from Zumbado, the destructive conqueror of her birth Earth.
DuVernay and Blankenship will be writing and executive producing Naomi, with Sarah Bremner and Paul Garnes producing.
