The CW is developing a reboot of the drama series of the martial arts of the 1970's Kung Fu with the creator Greg Berlanti, who handles executive production through his Berlanti Productions.

The series is written by Kim, and the executive producers are Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter with Kim and Gero through the Ginn's Quinn's House Production. Berlanti, the master of the TV programs of superheroes, he has directed series including All American, Arrow, Black Lightning, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Riverdale, Supergirl, and Blindspot.
The original series was created by Ed Spielman, Jerry Thorpe, and Herman Miller, and aired for three seasons from 1972 to 1975. Here, the veteran actor David Carradine played the role of Kwai Chang Caine. The series Kung Fu was also adapted into a film in 1986 titled Kung Fu: The Movie, and has also generated two series of the spin-off Kung Fu: The Next Generation, and Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.
