Supergirl set to fly in the US
CBS says yes to yet another superhero series based on a DC Comics favourite.
Supergirl is getting her own series.
CBS has approved the project developed by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Brothers and Sisters) and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family, The New Normal).
The series features Melissa Benoist (Glee) as Kara Zor-El, who was born on Krypton but has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin since arriving on Earth. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
It also features Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh and David Harewood.
The latest superhero series will make five DC/WBTV series on the air in the US: Gotham on FOX, the CW’s Arrow, The Flash and iZombie on the CW, and Constantine on NBC -although the latter may not be long for this universe.
Supergirl has previously appeared in Smallville and had a 1984 feature film starring Helen Slater. Slater plus Dean Cain Jeremy Jordan and Malina Weissman also guest star in the Pilot.
The series is expected to be a Nine property in Australia.
