We’ve stopped watching most things on The CW, because lets face it – there are only so many DC shows that one person can handle. And well, we can’t handle much anymore.
Though lets make it clear, not hating on Superman & Lois at all, because that show is great.
But we have to admit – Tom Swift has our attention. We’re overlooking the fact that it’s a spin off of Nancy Drew. The show, “follows the serialized adventures of its titular gay, billionaire inventor (Tian Richards) who is thrust into a world of sci-fi conspiracy and unexplained phenomena after the shocking disappearance of his father. Tom takes to the road on a quest to unravel the truth, leaving behind the comforts of his usual moneyed lifestyle, all while fighting to stay one step ahead of an Illuminati-scale group that’s hellbent on stopping him. Tom’s missions will require his genius and flair for innovation guided by love, romance, friendship and the mysteries of the universe yet unsolved.”
With the first look we’re even more excited.
Not to mention that there are some pretty amazing actors attached. Tian Richards is Tom Swift, Ashleigh Murray plays Tom Swift’s best friend, Marquise Vilsón plays his body guard, Albert Mwangi is Rowan who has a lot of chemistry with Tom, April Parker Jones is his mama, and Levar Burton is the voice of Tom’s AI.
The new CW series is set to premiere on the network on May 31.
