Barry Allen, Central City crime lab detective, through an accidental combination of being struck by lightning and exposure to chemicals transforms into Silver Age super hero The Flash. With the help of S.T.A.R. Labs scientist, Dr. Christina "Tina" McGee, Allen learns to control his ability to run and move faster than any man alive. Starring actor John Wesley Shipp as The Flash, Amanda Pays and Alex Désert, the show follows the crime fighting adventures of the Scarlet Speedster as he cleans up the streets of Central City.

Produced and written by the team of Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, The Flash brings the pages of DC Comics to life. A cast of villains, some from the Rogues Gallery in the pages of The Flash comic book, are played by such well known actors as Mark Hamill and Jeffrey Combs. This Warner Brothers production also guest stars M.Emmet Walsh as Allen's father and Tim Thomerson as his deceased brother.

Shortly after his transformation into the super human Flash, Barry's brother is killed by a motorcycle gang. The events inspire him to use his super powers to apprehend the leader Pike and steers him down the road of super hero. With the help of Dr. Tina McGee and her red body suit invention, Allen becomes the savior for a crime riddled Central City and target for various villains, both super and not.

Filmed in a classic noir style, this Silver Age comic is brought to life using antique cars and the art deco buildings in Los Angeles. The theme song was written and performed by Danny Elfman and costumes were created by Stan Winston.

A Pet Fly Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television, The Flash is 22 episodes including a one hour pilot.
