Greg Berlanti ('Brothers & Sisters') will serve as an executive producer for the superhero project, while 'Fringe's Andrew Kreisberg will write the pilot and executive produce. Berlanti and Kreisberg last collaborated on ABC's 'Eli Stone.'

As die-hard DC Comics fans know, the series will center on Booster Gold, a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back in time to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest superhero of all time. However, his priorities are a little off. Instead of chasing criminals, his main priority is chasing fame and money. Booster Gold will soon realize that being a superhero means that you actually need to do a little work.
