Default The CW's 'Supergirl' (Season 5)

Quote:
DC Entertainment Actively Pitching A Supergirl TV Series, With Michael Green?

Michael Green is a producer on TV shows including Gotham, American Gods, Smallville, and Heroes, writer on Smallville, Heroes, Gotham, and films such as Green Lantern and the upcoming Flash.

So, you know, he has form.

He also worked with Mike Johnson on the New 52 reboot of Supergirl.

Well, we understand Green is now taking that a little further.

Bleeding Cool has been reliably informed by a comics/Hollywood contact that DC Comics is currently actively pitching Supergirl as a TV series, and Green is attached.

Writing/producing of course. Not actually playing Supergirl. Although, you know….

Well, with Flash, Constantine and Gotham whizzing around, might as well get a little Superness on the screen as well, I guess.

There has been plenty of press about neither Marvel and DC giving any female character a solo movie or TV show of late. But now Marvel have a Jessica Jones Netflix mini-series planned. Could DC Comics be the ones to make it ongoing? And a Supercharacter to boot?

Will anyone bite?
Bleeding Cool

I guess a Kara Zor-El show would be better than not getting any more of her at all, wonder who they'll cast in the main role.

They should just bring back Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0888882/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t14

E! confirms that WB is shopping it around to networks.

It was pitched first to The CW, but they turned it down.

I'd be on board with that, doubt she still wants to do the role though.

Supergirl is a hard show to do without ties to Superman in some way.

The easiest way would be as a spinoff from Smallville continuity... but they might want it to stand on its own.

Supergirl as a character can absolutely stand on her own... but hard to have it without there also being some Superman sometimes.

It would be like having a show about Robin without having Batman. Robin did a lot on his own, and the original became Nightwing... but it's hard to separate the two.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Smallville spinoff... but that would make it awkward since Arrow isn't a Smallville spinoff.

I don't know why they wouldn't just try again to do a better job with Wonder Woman since she can stand completely on her own as a series.

Arrow and Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti is producing this as well. Makes me wonder why it's not going to The CW.

I'm not feeling excited for this one at all. I didn't even care much for the Kara character in Smallville. I was glad to see her leave. I think it's because she just wasn't that interesting. Not only that, we got such a dismal finale to Smallville.

Surely there are other female DC characters that would be better.

Zatanna would be amazing. Now, that's someone I could get excited for.

I agree...if they arent going to give u Superman for the show theyd be better off relaunching Supergirl in the next Superman movie and spin her off to tv that way.

And Im still waiting for Katee Sackhoff as Ms Marvel.

I'm a fan of the Supergirl character, but haven't liked any of the TV/movie incarnations I've seen. A lot will depend on the actress and whether they try to copy Buffy (super-powered high school girl fighting monsters of the week). I don't have high hopes.

I'd only watch this if the character was treated seriously, and her integrity remained intact. Too many executives would "trash her up" like crazy, and that's not Supergirl to me.

Berlanti confirms that development has started. It also hasn't been pitched to any networks yet, so CW is still a possibility.

Quote:
"We're just starting to work on it," Berlanti told CBR News. "We haven't gone to the networks yet, so. I'll be happy, very excited to talk about it once we know where its home will be and that kind of stuff, but not at this moment. "

I always thought so but the new 52s and the Justice League show both seem to disagree. Then again I'm one of those who think Kara is more powerful than her cousin.

Yeah, but Season 2 is only ten episodes long; they could probably still get her for "Supergirl", depending on the filming schedule.

Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler's Supergirl has a home: CBS.

CBS has landed the high-profile DC Comics adaptation, handing out a hefty series commitment, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The hourlong drama, taken out last week, centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has 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. (The character was previously played by Laura Vandervoort on The CW's Superman origin story Smallville.)

Berlanti and Adler, who previously teamed on ABC's superhero drama No Ordinary Family, will pen the script and executive produce the drama via Berlanti Productions' Warner Bros. Television-based banner. Berlanti Productions' topper Sarah Schecter also executive produces.
The Supergirl pickup also means all five of the broadcast networks could have superhero-themed series on the air next season, with DC properties on four of the five. Fox on Monday launches its highly anticipated Batman prequel Gotham — which like Supergirl started with a series commitment; NBC has Hellblazer take Constantine due in October; CW has Flash and Arrow; and ABC, via Disney's deal with Marvel, has Agents of SHIELD and bridge series Agent Carter. For its part, Netflix also has four Marvel series and a mini, starting with Daredevil.
Photos: Broadcast TV's New 2014-15 Shows
Comic adaptations are the fall's biggest bet, with many producers telling THR that the wave comes as superheroes continue to dominate the box office and as the technology to tell such stories has evolved, among other factors. AMC's The Walking Dead, TV's biggest drama in the key adults 18-49 demographic, is also based on a comic and the network is tapping that well for a companion series eyed for 2015. Other cable networks — as well as Sony's PlayStation — have also joined the fray, with comic takes on Powers, Preacher, Outcast, Ronin, Clone, Titans, Scalped and more.
Supergirl now gives Berlanti three shows based on characters from the DC Comics universe. It joins The CW veteran Arrow and upcoming spinoff The Flash. It also comes as Berlanti's newest drama, NBC's Mysteries of Laura adaptation, opened to strong viewership this week. Supergirl is Berlanti's third sale this development season and second at CBS. He also has supernatural procedural The Things They Left Behind based on a Stephen King short story set up at CBS with a put-pilot commitment and FBI thriller Blindspot at NBC with a script plus penalty attached.
Berlanti is repped by WME and Felker Toczek; Adler, whose credits include NBC's The New Normal, Glee and Chuck, is with WME.

Yep, CBS. And they paid a pretty penny for it, too.

Quote:
The deal closed last night, a day after the project was taken out to the broadcast networks on Wednesday. I hear the size of commitment eclipses the series commitment DC Batman drama Gotham got at Fox last fall.
The log line sounds good:

Berlanti and Adler will write the script and executive produce with Berlanti Prods.’ Sarah Schechter. Also closely involved in the development of the project has been DC Entertainment’s chief creative officer Geoff Johns.
