'Supergirl' TV Show Will Include Jimmy Olsen and Cat Grant

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We reported yesterday that producers of the upcoming CBS series Supergirl are currently casting the title character, Kara Zor-el a.k.a. Kara Danvers, and a character created specifically for this program, Kara's foster sister Alex. Today, we have more character breakdowns from TV Line, all of whom originate in the comic books, Cat Grant, Jimmy Olsen, Winslow "Wynn" Schott, a.k.a. Toyman and Hank Henshaw, a.k.a. Cyborg Superman. Take a look at the character details below.

Cat Grant

The project is eyeing females in their 40s, open ethnicity, to play the founder of CatCo, a media conglomerate that Cat built from the ground up. Kara (Supergirl's mild-mannered alter ego) will work as a personal assistant to Cat, who is described as "J.Lo by way of Anna Wintour."

James Olsen

In his late 20s/early 30s, open ethnicity, James is a smart, worldly and (duh) attractive photographer for CatCo. »

We’re still about a year away from the premiere of CBS’s Supergirl, from Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler (ChuckNo Ordinary Family), and although we don’t have any actual casting news to report for Supergirl, we now have a better idea of which characters will be appearing on the series and what the show’s producers are looking for.

'Supergirl' TV Show Character and Story Details Unveiled

30 October 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since the Supergirl TV series was first reported last month, the project has sped through development, with CBS picking up the show in mid-September. Casting is currently under way for the title character, Kara Zor-El, along with a character created specifically for the series, Kara's foster sister.

TV Line has acquired a casting breakdown for the series, which confirms plot details that were released last month. Much like in the DC Comics, Kara Zor-El will be sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth at the tender age of 12, where she is taken in by the Danvers family.

Her new family warns her early on about using her powers, which causes Kara Danvers to repress her gifts until the age of 24, when she suddenly puts her powers on display during an "unexpected disaster." For the first time in her life, she begins using her abilities to help »

Supergirl TV Show Casting Breakdown Reveals Plot Details for the CBS Comics Adaptation

30 October 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As you might have noticed, superheroes are all the rage at the moment, and the enthusiasm extends well beyond the multiplex.  There are a number of comic book-sourced shows on television right now, and CBS is hoping to get in on the fun with a Supergirl TV show.  Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti and No Ordinary Family alum Ali Adler are spearheading the pilot, and a new casting breakdown has revealed what their take on Supergirl entails—assuming CBS orders the show to series, that is.  More on the show’s two major characters after the jump. Casting is now underway for the Supergirl pilot, and per TV Line, there are two lead roles that they’re looking for first: Kara Zor-El, aka Kara Danvers, and Alexandra “Alex” Danvers.  For the role of Kara, aka Supergirl, producers are looking at Caucasian females ages 22 to 26 to play 24.  Here’s how they »

Meet CBS' Supergirl (and Her Sister), Get Scoop on Kara's Big Entrance

30 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Casting is now underway — courtesy of the same folks who populated Arrow and The Flash — for CBS’ Supergirl series, and TVLine has details on exactly what (and who) the DC Comics-based drama is looking for in two of its lead roles.

For Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers, the show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24.

Supergirl TV Series Gets Arrow & The Flash Casting Director

29 October 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We recently found out that a Supergirl television series had landed a series commitment at CBS, and that it would be coming from Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family). Now it seems that, despite being on a different network to those other 2 DC superhero shows, Berlanti has once again turned to casting director David Rapaport to find our new small-screen Kara Zor-El and her supporting characters, whoever they may wind up being. pic.twitter.com/t8woOBbypr — DavidRapaportCasting (@RapaportCasting) October 29, 2014 Despite Rapaport casting all three shows, it's not expected that Supergirl will be a part of the same TV universe as Arrow and The Flash (though some crossover might be a possibility), but fans seem to have taken to Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin in their roles so young Kara would appear to be in good hands at least. Here's a brief synopsis for the show. »

The Casting Director That Brought Us Arrow And The Flash Is Working On Supergirl

29 October 2014 7:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last month, it was announced that a Supergirl television show had landed a series commitment at CBS, and that it would be coming from Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti and his frequent collaborator, Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family). Now, we’ve learned that the producer is not the only thing that Supergirl will share with the likes of CW’s two super shows. David Rapaport, the casting director who found Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin for Arrow and The Flash, respectively, will also find our Kara Zor-El.

It’s not at all surprising that Berlanti would once again turn to Rapaport to find the star for his latest DC Comics adaptation. Amell and Gustin are widely revered as excellent choices for their title roles, and are surrounded by a pretty unique and well-balanced cast of supporting characters as well. So, it’s likely that Rapaport will find similar luck with Supergirl. »

American Horror Story: Freak Show Review: “Massacres And Matinees” (Season 4, Episode 2)

15 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Among many other things, it looks like we’re in for a slew of wackily enjoyable, anachronistic musical numbers this fall on American Horror Story: Freak Show. In last week’s premiere, Jessica Lange delivered a gutsy rendition of David Bowie’s Life on Mars, and in tonight’s “Massacres and Matinees,” Sarah Paulson completely slays Fiona Apple’s Criminal, brandishing a set of singing chops that immediately makes Dot (in a delicious twist, one sister has a gorgeous voice while the other does not) Elsa’s least favorite of the twins.

And yet, such are the levels of insanity on Freak Show that Elsa’s immature stage jealousy and the consequent origins of a sure-to-be disastrous diva rivalry are being firmly kept at side-plot status. On this week’s creepy and crazy installment, new additions to the freak show throw the performers for a loop, Twisty the demented clown »

CBS Orders Supergirl TV Show from Arrow Producer Greg Berlanti

19 September 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Supergirl TV show is officially a “go”.  We heard a couple of weeks ago that Arrow and The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti was developing a possible TV series based on the DC comics heroine, and now Deadline reports that CBS has given a big series commitment to Supergirl.  The drama will be written by Berlanti and Ali Adler (The New Normal, No Ordinary Family), with Adler also acting as an executive producer on the series.  Apparently CBS’ straight-to-series commitment is bigger than the one Fox recently gave to the upcoming Gotham, which is a prequel of sorts to the Batman storyline.  This continues the expansion of comic book adaptation fever into the TV world, which is becoming more and more crowded with small screen iterations of famous superheroes.  More on Supergirl after the jump. For those unfamiliar, the character of Supergirl was introduced in the comics world in 1959.  She is, »

CBS has given a series commitment to an hour-long drama about Kara Zor-El, the DC Comics heroine who escaped the planet Krypton amid its destruction. Having hid all this time on Earth the powers she shares with “her famous cousin” (as the official logline cheekily puts it), 24-year-old Kara decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and “be the hero she was meant to be.”

DC’s Supergirl Series May Show Up On The CW After All

9 September 2014 8:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week we heard that Warner Brothers was developing a Supergirl TV series from The Flash producer Greg Berlanti, his frequent collaborator Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and DC chief creative officer Geoff Johns. At the time it was reported that the series was still in early development and would soon be pitched around to various studios. We also heard that it would not air on The CW, the network that houses both The Flash and Arrow. Now that doesn’t seem to be so finite.

Berlanti himself spoke with Cbr during PaleyFest 2014 and confirmed that he and Adler are working on the series. Unfortunately, he didn’t offer very many details about the direction of the series, noting instead that it was still in the early development stages:

“We’re just starting to work on it. We haven’t gone to the networks yet, so… I’ll be happy, »

'Arrow' Producer Confirms 'Supergirl' TV Show Is Moving Forward

9 September 2014 2:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following two separate reports that surfaced last week, Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti confirmed at Paleyfest 2014 that he is working on a Supergirl TV series. Here's what the writer-producer had to say, revealing the project doesn't have a network home at this time.

"We're just starting to work on it. 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."

While there was a rumor that The CW had passed on the show, it's clear that Greg Berlanti hasn't even started shopping the project around yet, meaning it still could land at The CW. Laura Vandervoort played Kara Zor-El, a.k.a. Supergirl, on The CW's Smallville in a two-episode arc.

It's possible that Supergirl could first appear on either Arrow or The Flash, »

Greg Berlanti Confirms That A Supergirl TV Series Is Indeed On The Way

9 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

There have been mixed reports about a Supergirl television series, with it initially being claimed that comic book writer Michael Green was developing the show for DC Comics and Warner Bros. It was later revealed that he actually has no involvement, and that it will instead be Greg Berlanti (who executive produces Arrow and The Flash) steering the series, and joining him will be writer Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family). When Comic Book Resources caught up with the former at PaleyFest 2014, Berlanti confirmed that a Supergirl series is in development, and while he couldn't give away any specifics, "We're just starting to work on it.
