Breaking News: Supergirl's Getting a TV Show

Looks like the Man of Steel isn’t the only Kryptonian you’ll soon be seeing on screen.

Yes, the news of its development broke a few weeks ago, but today it was made official. As reported this morning, Berlanti Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television, will be producing a Supergirl television series for CBS, which has given the show a series commitment.

If the Berlanti name sounds familiar to you, it should. It’s the production company of Greg Berlanti, the Executive Producer of both Arrow and the upcoming The Flash. He’ll serve as Executive Producer of Supergirl as well, along with Ali Adler and Sarah Schechter. As for what fans can expect from the show, it sounds like Berlanti and team will be keeping pretty faithful to the comics:

Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-el escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s 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.

Supergirl first appeared in ACTION COMICS #252 back in May, 1959, and eventually went on to become one of the core members of the Superman family. This won’t be her first onscreen appearance, having previously been the star of a 1984 feature film starring Helen Slater, as well as a supporting character on The CW’s Smallville. She’s also appeared in animation, including Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League Unlimited, as well in several DC Universe Original Animated Movies, including the recent Superman: Unbound.

Look for more news on her most recent live action iteration here on DCComics.com as it breaks.

This is SO exciting!
I was thinking about this last night.

How I'd do it: The Final Fantasy X approach.

Start in Zanarkand, er I mean, Krypton, with Kara as just a regular kryptonian teenage girl, hooking up with her krypton friends, babysitting Kal, watching her dad having heated debates with his brother, etc.
Now here's the twist.
The first 10 minutes of Kara's setup, everybody speaks kryptonian.
Remember how they hired linguists to develop a whole new language for the Man of Steel movie? (http://kryptonian.info/news-feed.html/2013/07/22/interview-with-man-of-steel-linguist-christine-schreyer/)
Use that.

Then, all of a sudden, a distressed call from dad to come home, skies change color, an earthquake ensues, a building collapses and Kara passes out...

... to wake up in a corn field near an impact crater, under a blue sky.

Around her, cars have stopped and people run toward her screaming in a strange, alien language:
"- aar ooo aw rite?"

I'd say it's a bad idea. Unless we're talking about Power Girl.

pishhh....nah is for TV power girl would be a no, no.....and they would pg 13 her boobs lol.

So long as they put some chick that the audience thinks is hot they'll do good. so long as they fallow the smallville formula too.

I've been married for like 7 years lol, what passes for beauty today??

Seems like a bunch of fake from head to toe chicks....I need to go back in time were they had some classy dames.
