Update on Supergirl’s pilot
People are wondering why it hasn’t been picked up yet and if it’s a bad sign.
Well after looking around and investigating this is what we have come up with. It looks as tho post production took longer to finish based on pics and tweets. It looks as tho the pilots final production finished up around last week.
Deadline has been reporting about pilot buzz and this is what they said about Supergirl on April 18th.
“I don’t have a good read yet on the two highest profile CBS hourlong titles, Supergirl and Rush Hour. None have made a splash in the early buzz but they were both late and, in case of Supergirl, require extensive post-production. There had been rumors about possible issues on Rush Hour as well as speculation anout Supergirl possibly moving to CBS sibling the CW,
which appears completely unfounded, at least for the time being. And
while both projects seem to be flying under the radar early on, they
come from proven hitmakers, Greg Berlanti (Supergirl) and Bill Lawrence (Rush Hour) behind them.” (X)
Now later that night Geoff Johns post this on instagram
Glen Winter is the director of the pilot and they were obviously celebrating something Supergirl related. My first thought was that maybe they got picked up but now it seems as though they had just finished post production.
How can cbs finally pick up Supergirl if they had not seen the pilot officially. So that’s why the deadline article had nothing on Supergirl.
Now April 21′st Blake Neely tweeted this
Looks as tho everything is wrapping up for the pilot. Score’s done, post production most likely done now they have to put it together and send to cbs.
Newest deadline article says this now 2 days ago April 24
“Supergirl also appears to be a contender for a pickup, with the remaining two hourlong pilots, Sneaky Pete and Rush Hour said to be OK while backed by significant commitments.“ (X)
See how they went from Supergirl might move to cw to is likely a contender for cbs in a week.
Now if it’s in on CW or CBS, I don’t care as long as I see this show on my screen I’m happy. I do believe that Cbs will definitely pick it, considering they had a lot of faith in it to give it a series commitment, and all they buzz it has been getting since the announcement.
Rumors are rumors, don’t worry about them. CBS will announce their line up May 13th at the upfronts.
So just hold your worries in until then. We will find out more about Supergirl by May 13th or before, if they make a announcement.
