You’ve got to hand it to ‘em — the folks at The CW sure know a good marketing angle when they see it. Up for some sci-fi this fall? No problem, because a certain ass-kicking family has you covered.
With returning hit Arrow launching next month, along with new addition The Tomorrow People, the network is pushing the familial connection between the series’ two stars Stephen Amell and Robbie Amell, respectively.
The two ruggedly handsome cousins will each be anchoring their own sci-fi series this fall, so The CW is letting fans know what to expect from “Amell Wednesdays,” as we get to see a lighter side of the typically stoic Stephen outside of his Arrow persona. For The CW, it seems like a no-brainer. Stephen paid off, so why not give his younger cousin a shot?
Both shows are set to debut Wednesday, Oct. 9 on The CW this fall.
