Walker and illustrated by breakout artist Jamal Campbell, the show 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.
Amanda Marsalis will direct and co-executive produce the pilot, from DuVernay’s Array Filmworks and Warner Bros. Television.
Naomi, the network’s latest DC adaptation, comes from DuVernay and Arrow writer and co-executive producer Jill Blankenship.
