More and more good news for DC’s TV properties. Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist, has been picked up with a series order by CBS. The show is being developed by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash), Ali Adler (Chuck), and Andrew Kreisberg (Arrow, The Flash) with Kreisberg serving as executive producer.
Here’s the series synopsis, courtesy of Deadline:
“Supergirl…centers on Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist). Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Co-starring as regulars are Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw. Berlanti, Adler and Sarah Schechter executive produce.”
So, seeing as how Berlanti and Kreisberg are also working on Arrow and The Flash, do you think we could see some crossover action in the not-too-distant future? According to CBS President Nina Tassler, it doesn’t look too likely since the shows are on two different networks. But, never say never when superheroes are involved. After all, Sony and Marvel found a way to get Spider-Man involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, right?
