He is the first actor to be cast in the live-action series based on the DC comics property. Berlanti, Guggenheim and Grahame-Smith executive produce with Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter, David Madden and David Katzenberg; Elizabeth Hunter and Sara Saedi co-executive produce.

''Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favourites to never-before-seen heroes''. As per the Deadline. 

Wittrock is best known for his work in 'American Horror Story,' for which he earned an Emmy nomination in 2015. He later worked on the second season of the same show, which also earned him an Emmy nod.  Most recently, He worked in the Netflix series 'Ratched'.
