CBS has officially given the greenlight to a series based on the “Supergirl” comic series. And they must feel pretty confident in it because the network completely ignored the “in development” stage and just ran with a series order for the project.
Supergirl is a character from DC Comics. The series will follow Kara Zor-El. She was born on Krypton however she escaped amid its destruction years ago. And since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
“Supergirl” will be a one hour drama from the production company that created “Arrow” and “The Flash” for The CW. Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler will be serving as writers as well as executive producers with Sarah Schechter.
Currently, there are no plans to have a crossover with the DC series on The CW but that doesn’t mean it will never happen.
There is no word yet on when “Supergirl” will enter production or who the studio is looking to star in the series.
