Hailing from Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions (who also produce the hit DC Comics series “Arrow” and “The Flash” for The CW), “Supergirl” is based on the characters from DC Comics and centers on Kara Zor-El, who comes to Earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton. After many years hiding her abilities, she joins the ranks of her cousin Superman to become the hero she was meant to be.
The pilot episode was written by Ali Adler (“No Ordinary Family”) and Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”). They will also executive produce along with Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros. TV. The show has a series commitment at CBS.
The cast so far:
Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers/Supergirl
Mehcad Brooks as James "Jimmy" Olsen
Laura Benanti as Alura In-Ze/Zor-El
Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant
David Harewood as Hank Henshaw
Jeremy Jordan as Winslow Schott
Chyler Leigh as Alexandra Danvers............Kara's foster sister who works for a secret government organization.
Helen Slater and Dean Cain are cast in the pilot yet to be revealed roles.
DC villain The Lumberjack will be on the show
Rumor that Superman may appear on the show........in some form.
Of course there is some blacklash on the race swap of Jimmy and Hank.
