DC TV Classics 29 - The CBS 'Justice League of America' TV Movie from 1997

Twenty years before Justice League fizzled at the box office, another Justice League... failed spectacularly on DC TV. In 1997, CBS commissioned a pilot for a Justice League series that never went to air in the United States.

The movie starred Matthew Settle as Green Lantern, Kimberly Oja as Ice, John Kassir as The Atom, Michelle Hurd as...
