‘Supergirl’ will officially fly at CBS after the network officially picked up the show to series on Wednesday….
Just like Superman, the character is based on a DC Comics character. Super Girl, or Kara Zor-El, escaped to Earth when her native Krypton was destroyed. The series follows Super Girl, who is now 24 years old, as she possesses the same powers her cousin, Superman, does.
Supergirl is the latest DC series that’s coming from executive producer Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow), via IGN. Berlanti is joined on the project by Ali Adler (Chuck) and Sarah Schechter (The Flash).
Other characters who’ll be joining the lead of Benoist will be Mehcad Brooks as James “Jimmy” Olsen, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw and Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers with Laura Benanti.
