Does Greg Berlanti Have a Supergirl TV Show in the Works?

     September 4, 2014


He’s already got Arrow and The Flash, but a report just surfaced claiming that Greg Berlanti plans to move on to Supergirl next.  The project is still in development, but apparently Warner Bros. TV is already on board to produce it alongside Berlanti Productions.

The show is said to be a “new interpretation” of the character and her story.  Ali Adler (The New Normal, No Ordinary Family) will likely pen the script and Geoff Johns will be involved as well, but there’s no word on what his role will be just yet.  Hit the jump for more on the planned Supergirl TV show.

supergirl-comicAs reported by Deadline, the show doesn’t have a name yet, but Berlanti and his team are considering options that would need to be cleared like Super and Girl.  The next step is to pitch the idea to the major networks, similar to what WBTV and DC just did with Gotham, which found a home at Fox.

There’s also a rumor floating around via Bleeding Cool that DC Comics is pitching a Supergirl TV series with Michael Green (Heroes, Smallville) attached to write and produce, but according to the Deadline piece, Green isn’t involved at all.  However, now we’ve got E! reporting that he is, so who knows for sure?  Although, considering his success with Arrow (and many other shows), it seems that something with Berlanti at the helm would be more likely to happen.

Here’s a description of the character via DC Comics:

Teenager Kara Zor-el was rocketed to Earth from the dying planet Krypton. Faced with an entire world completely unrecognizable from the one she grew up in, she’s the ultimate new girl in school—with a planet-splitting right hook.  A lonely girl with astounding might, she struggles to find her identity on her new reluctant home.

As the most powerful teenager on the planet, the Girl of Steel possesses all of Superman’s powers—from superhuman strength, speed, and invulnerability all the way down to his flight and enhanced senses.  Still learning to control her awesome powers and lacking her cousin’s self-restraint, she may even be more dangerous than the Man of Steel.  Disconnected from a world she’s still struggling to comprehend, she’ll find non-stop action and violence from her first minute on this planet.
