Here’s the series description from CW Seed.
“Ten years ago, Slade Wilson — aka the super-assassin called Deathstroke — made a tragic mistake and his wife and son paid a terrible price. Now, a decade later, Wilson’s family is threatened once again by the murderous Jackal and the terrorists of H.IV.E. Can Deathstroke atone for the sins of the past — or will his family pay the ultimate price?”
Michael Chiklis will star in the series as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke. Sasha Alexander also co-stars as Addie, Slade’s ex-wife; with Griffin Puatu as their son, Jericho. Additionally, Faye Mata will voice Rose, Slade’s estranged daughter. Colin Salmon will portray Slade’s confidant, Wintergreen, while Chris Jai Alex will provide the voice of Jackal. However, Jackal won’t be the only DC villain in the series. Panta Mosleh is set to play one of the deadliest assassins in the DC Universe: Lady Shiva.
