Supergirl Comic New 52 Supergirl TV Show Get Series Commitment from CBS

Two weeks ago we got the somewhat unexpected (but very much welcome) news that a Supergirl TV series is actively moving forward; confirmation arrived soon thereafter, with the revelation that the show is being developed by Ali Adler and Greg Berlanti (collaborators on the single-season super-powered family series No Ordinary Family). The project has now received a series commitment from CBS, which is in line with an earlier report that asserted the show was not necessarily destined to air on the CW.

Supergirl is going to follow the adventures of Kara Zor-El, the other surviving member of Krypton – who, like her cousin Kal-El, initially passes herself off as a regular human, upon arriving on Earth. However, unlike the Superman origin series Smallville, the Supergirl TV show ...

‘Supergirl’ TV Show Moves Forward at CBS

0

Just a few weeks after Arrow producer Greg Berlanti confirmed he is developing a Supergirl TV series, the project has landed a series commitment at CBS. The deal closed last night, just one day after Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler pitched the show to various networks on Wednesday.

The Supergirl character was created in 1959 by Otto Binder. While there have been several different characters who have taken up the Supergirl mantle, the CBS series will center on the most popular incarnation, Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman. Kara not only shares all of Superman's powers, but also his vulnerability to kryptonite. The show will focus on Supergirl as she starts to use her incredible powers, taking the opposite approach from The CW and Warner Bros. Television's Smallville, which showed Clark Kent's journey to becoming Superman. That series, which ran for 10 seasons, showcased the Supergirl character played by Laura Vandervoort in two episodes.

Kara was born on Krypton but escaped to Earth just before her home planet was destroyed, hiding in plain sight on Earth while never using her powers. The show picks up with the title character at age 24, when she decides to embrace her incredible abilities.

Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are writing the pilot script, with DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns also involved in the pilot's development. The writers will executive produce alongside Sara Schechter. Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler previously collaborated on ABC's superhero series No Ordinary Family.

Before picking up this project, CBS was the only network that didn't have a superhero project. ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. starts its second season next week, with The CW's Arrow returning for its third season in October, along with the spin-off series The Flash. Fox is debuting its highly-anticipated series Gotham on Monday, with NBC rolling out its comic adaptation Constantine in October.

‘Starlight’ Movie Lands ‘Star Wars’ Writer Gary Whitta

Screenwriter Gary Whitta, who is writing the first Star Wars Spin-Off directed by Gareth Edwards, has signed on to write the Mark Millar comic book adaptation Starlight.

The story centers on Duke McQueen, an intergalactic hero who saved the Earth several decades ago, although, upon his return home, no one believed his far-fetched tales. Several years later, when he has settled down as an adult, he is called upon once again for one final adventure.

20th Century Fox beat out two other studios in a bidding war for the rights to this comic back in December. That report revealed Simon Kinberg was set to write the screenplay and produce, but now he is only set to produce, with Gary Whitta taking over the writing duties. The comic book debuted in March, kicking off the highly-anticipated MillarWorld Universe. The latest issue, Starlight #5, hit the shelves on August 13.

No production schedule was given for Starlight at this time, and it is unclear when Gary Whitta will start working on the script.

Gary Whitta's feature credits include The Book of Eli, Undying and After Earth.

Starlight is in development .
