Get a First Look at DC and The CW’s Naomi

DC and The CW have released an official image from the anticipated series Naomi. The image is of actress Kaci Walfall as Naomi McDuffie.

Created by Brian Michael Bendis, David F. Walker, and Jamal Campbell, the series is about Naomi an adopted high school student living in a small town unaware of her history.

The released image is a bit of an homage to the cover of the first issue that introduced the character which you can see below. If given a green light, the series will stay true to the comic series which ran for six issues (so far).

Along with Walfall, Naomi also stars Alexander Wraith as Dee, Cranston Johnson as Zumbado, and Camila Moreno as Lourdes. It’s executive produced by Ava DuVernay, Jill Blankenship, Sarah Bremner, and Paul Garnes, and produced by DuVernay’s Array Filmworks in association with Warner Bros. Television.
