Jesse L. Martin is about to pull his badge back out.

West is described as a trustworthy father figure to Gustin’s hero, who will star in his own pilot that CW executives will screen this spring before deciding whether or not to order the drama to series.

Arrow producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti will helm the project.
