NEW YORK, N.Y. - The CW television network is bringing the comic book hero "The Flash" onto its fantasy-laden schedule, along with a soap opera about a virgin who is artificially inseminated by accident.

The series about a superhero who moves about with lightning speed will air Tuesday nights, one of only two new series the CW is introducing in the fall.

The other, "Jane the Virgin," is a telenovela adaptation about a young woman obsessed with telenovelas whose life takes on some theatrical complications. Through a doctor's mistake, she's inseminated with a specimen from a playboy donor.

"The Flash" will fit right in to a youth-focused network that already has series about vampires, a vampire-werewolf hybrid, medieval royalty, humans returned after being exiled in space, supernatural hunters and an injustice-fighting billionaire back after being shipwrecked. And supermodels.

CW President Mark Pedowitz also said Thursday he's trying again to make a "Supernatural" spinoff. Two older series, "Hart of Dixie" and "Beauty and the Beast," aren't on the schedule but will return at some point, Pedowitz said.

The CW ordered two other fantasy-based series for midseason use:

—"iZombie," about an overachieving medical student whose life was upended when she went to a party that turned out to be a zombie feeding frenzy.

—"The Messengers," about a group of strangers drawn together to prevent the end of the world.
