Supergirl is coming to CBS. The network has just landed the DC Comics adaptation, which is being executive produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family).
The pickup means that, if all goes well, four of the five broadcast networks will airing shows based on DC characters next season. The fifth, ABC, will still be in the costumed-hero game, with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. Hit the jump for the latest on the Supergirl TV show.

On one hand, the way in which WB and DC have been outpacing theatrical films with TV show development is surprising. Think about it for a moment, however, and it makes sense. The stakes are lower. Stories aren’t overthought. Hell, with a full season of TV to play with, shows might not be fully conceptualized from the start at all. Movies seem like monolithic artifacts; they’re juggernauts when it comes to defining pop culture. A TV series, especially one considered to be lighter entertainment, is perhaps a bit easier.
And so, despite the fact that the 2011 attempt to make a Wonder Woman show failed, and the second iteration, Amazon, has stalled, DC has managed to follow Smallville with Arrow, and will soon offer The Flash, Gotham, and Constantine on television. (We’ll see how it goes with that last one.)
Now there’s a Supergirl show in development, too. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s pretty early on, and there’s no title, with producers reportedly considering stuff such as Super and Girl. Look beyond that, however, and hope for the best. More info on the new Supergirl TV series follows. Read More »
