After releasing the teaser for the first episode of “Painkiller,” The CW has finally released the official synopsis for the “Black Lightning” spinoff series.
Khalil Payne (Jordan Calloway) is a young man dominated by guilt from his troubled past in Freeland City, where he acted as a killing machine known as Painkiller. He was a member of the Tobias Whale gang and a weapon of Agent Odell and the sad organization ASA. After attempting to bury the darkest and most devastating part of his personality in an attempt to find peace, Khalil has distanced himself from everyone he loves in a new town, the Akashic Valley. .. But peace is never easy to find for men with a past like Khalil Payne. As his violent and destructive story reaches its idyllic new beginning, Khalil is pushed back into action with a new mission – to bring justice where he had previously punished – but in order to do so, he will have to control his darker side, the Painkiller. .
With its premiere scheduled for April 12, the episode was directed by Salim Akil.
In the teaser, Painkiller meets Anissa Pierce (Nafessa Williams) and Grace Choi (Chantal Thuy) during their honeymoon, although it is not a loving reunion.
Painkiller seems determined to kill the Pierce family in an attempt to alleviate his own suffering, caused by a chip implanted in his brain, which makes him obey the orders of a criminal organization.
Previously, Calloway revealed to E! News that the completion of the new production was made possible in part through the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement, which has dedicated its efforts to ensuring a more equitable supply of papers and projects intended for blacks.
“To be honest, I think Black Lives Matter is probably one of the reasons we were able to get a spin-off. This is what ignited this motivation for more series with people of color ”.
Salim Akil, executive producer of the original series, will be responsible for the script and direction of the pilot.
Check out the official synopsis:
