The success of Arrow and the upcoming spinoff The Flash has led Warner Bros. to put into development a Supergirl TV series.

It’ll be the first time a primetime show airing on a network like The CW will focus on a female superhero rather than a male one.

According to Deadline, the Supergirl TV series is being produced by Greg Berlanti, the mind behind the two aforementioned CW super hero shows. WB is the television studio in charge of the DC properties like Supergirl.


In what would be his first major series gig, The Book Of Mormon star Andrew Rannells has been signed in a joint 20th Century Fox TV-NBC talent holding deal with the intention for him to play one of the 3 leads in the NBC/20th TV comedy from Ryan Murphy and Allison Adler. The single-camera project, co-written by Murphy and Adler and to be directed by Murphy, is described as a heartwarming comedy about a blended family of a gay couple and the woman who becomes a surrogate to help them start a family. It has not been greenlighted to pilot yet but is fully expected to. NBC landed the pitch in a three-way bidding war with penalty said to be bigger than any other commitment for a comedy project this season.


Not only is it immature and amateur to RT some fan stroking your ego, Ali is putting Naya on the spot.

Either Naya supports her BOSSES and pisses off her fanbase, goes against the very people that pay her bills, or she stays silent.

I cannot believe Ali just did this.

You guys have no idea how angry I am right now. The nerve of this woman.

I was at work all day today, so I silently watched the Twitter War slowly unfold on my phone. It’s interesting, having had the day to think about what’s going on, without actually participating, that there are those within the fandom saying that the writer’s should be left alone. It is their job, not ours to write these stories. That Brittana fans should be happy with what they are given.

Isn’t that the same message implicit in those Tweets? The writers are adults. They know what a kiss is. The message in those Tweets was that nuzzling and talking about scissoring should be good enough for us. Santana came out; it should be good enough, regardless of whether her story was told by her or by Finn. Santana and Brittany are dating, we should be happy that we got a 2 minute scene telling us that.

Last week there was talk that a Supergirl TV show was in development from Arrow and Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti. This week CBS has jumped straight to a series order for the show, meaning Supergirl is just about guaranteed to make it to air (or else the network pay a hefty kill fee) — and we can all start wildly speculating about who they’ll cast as the lead and which version of the character will make it to the screen.

Supergirl joins a couple of other recent announcements of DC-Comics-to-TV adaptations that could reach our screens around this time next year. Cable network TNT is working on a Titans show, focused on the character of Dick Grayson/Nightwing, and Fox is in development on a Lucifer show based on the character from Neil Gaiman’s Vertigo series The Sandman.

Greg Berlanti and former Chuck and Glee writer/producer Ali Adler will serve as showrunners on Supergirl, which was also developed by comics writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, and Variety describes the show as being about 24-year-old Kryptonian Kara Zor-El living on Earth and deciding to embrace her superpowers to become a hero like her famous cousin. Whether that’s an actual description of the show or just something Variety cobbled together from Wikipedia remains to be seen.
