Step Aside Superman! Supergirl Might Soon Be Coming To a TV Network Near You!


DC might be getting an even stronger TV presence soon, as Deadline reports that a Supergirl TV show might be in the works. Greg Berlanti, after the incredible success of Arrow and his new project, The Flash, receiving a lot of positive buzz, decided to transition another DC name onto the small screen. He teamed up with Ali Adler (Chuck, Glee, The New Normal), who will be writing the script, as well as act as an executive producer. The two of them previously worked together on ABC’s short-lived superhero drama No Ordinary Family.

The project is expected to be taken out in a couple of weeks and pitched to the major networks the way WBTV and DC did with their high profile Batman prequel Gotham, which landed at Fox with a big commitment. The Supergirl series had been in the works at WBTV for some time with Berlanti and Adler attached. It is worth pointing out that the show is not expected to land on the CW (which is the home of both Berlanti’s shows).

Contrary to a report that was picked up by a number of outlets, Michael Green has had no involvement in the project.

This potential Supergirl series is being described as a fresh take on the heroine’s origin story. Supergirl was most recently portrayed by Laura Vandervoort (Bitten) on The WB/CW’s Smallville.

  • Knowing the people behind it, she won’t be called anything for a while, especially if it’s an origin story. I’m pretty sure they are calling it a Supergirl show right now because that’s what the comics franchise is called and they want people to know what it is.
    We’ll see, but I choose to stay optimistic.
