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.”

The pilot (which was first announced two weeks ago) was penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family »

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, »

A few days ago, a rumor his the net that there is a Supergirl TV series in development over at DC Entertainment. Today we have confirmation from Arrow and The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti that the series is indeed on its way.

Cbr had a chance to talk with him briefly at PaleyFest 2014. He wasn't allowed to talk about any details on the project but he did say,

"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."

In our initial report, we heard TV producer Michael Green was developing the show, but it's actually going to be Berlanti, and he will be helped by writer Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family).

'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. 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."

'Supergirl' May Land Television Series

5 September 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are hoping to add some serious girl power to television by developing a "Supergirl" series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Greg Berlanti and Geoff Johns, who both serve as executive producers on The CW's "Arrow" and "The Flash," are attached to the project along with "No Ordinary Family" and "Chuck" writer-producer Ali Adler. In addition, Michael Green is also joining the series, according to E! Online. He has produced such series as "Gotham," "Smallville" and "Heroes," and he penned DC's recent "Supergirl" comics. The untitled project, which will be scripted by Adler, is in the early stages of development, but it's expected to be shopped to networks soon. Supergirl, or Kara Zor-El, was created by Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino, »

Supergirl Might be Getting Her Own TV Show

5 September 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Greg Berlanti, the dude who gave us “Arrow” and its spin-off show, “The Flash,” is triple diving back into the D.C. comic book vault and has resurfaced with a possible “Supergirl” TV show. Berlanti is said to be shopping the project around with fellow “No Ordinary Family” (another superhero show, in case you never saw it) producer Ali Adler, who from the sounds of it will be doing most of the heavy lifting on the show, including writing the script. Makes sense to have a woman writing the character, I guess. As with “Gotham,” Warner Bros. Television will be shopping the girl from Krypton around to potential networks. If it lands somewhere other than the CW, I guess that means your chances of seeing a Supergirl/Flash/Arrow team-up is a non-starter? Which would be a bummer. That is, if the show gets picked up somewhere. D.C. tried »

Supergirl TV Series On The Way?

5 September 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Among the plethora of superhero films and television programmes, we’ve heard that Supergirl is the next character lined up for a TV Show!

The man behind the project is Greg Berlanti, a producer who’s so far been behind Arrow (that’s doing rather well), The Flash (that’s coming up) and The Tomorrow People that, well, I believe is doing okay on the smaller circuit.

Supergirl is Superman’s cousin in the DC world and Deadline are reporting that Berlanti is working on the project with Ali Adler, who’s previously written for Glee, Chuck and No Ordinary Family. This project is in the early stages of production and so hasn’t been picked up anywhere yet but seems like the perfect fodder for the likes of Netflix or another streaming service – Would the fan base be big enough for this one – it’s unexpectedly worked for Arrow so who knows! »

New Supergirl TV series details

4 September 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday news broke that a Supergirl TV series was in development, from DC Comics writer Michael Green. Green worked on the Supergirl New 52 relaunch and has worked on shows like Smallville and Gotham, so his involvement certainly made sense. However, new reports have since surfaced from several of the trades, debunking Green’s involvement and providing a few updates.

According to Deadline, Green is not involved in the series at all. Instead, they’re reporting that The Flash producer Greg Berlanti has teamed with frequent collaborator Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns.

The series is being pitched to networks now, and will not be airing on the CW. The network may house Arrow and The Flash, and was the first company approached for the series, but they apparently passed. That means that despite fan desire to see Laura Vandervoort reprise the role from her Smallville days, »

4 September 2014 9:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Some more information has come to light regarding the reported TV series based on DC Comics heroine Supergirl. A report on Wednesday indicated Michael Green ("Heroes," "Smallville") was attached as a writer and producer on the potential series.

Now, E! Online has confirmed the original story and says The CW will not be the home of the series as thought.

Deadline added that Green is Not the producer, but rather "Arrow" and "The Flash" co-creator and executive producer Greg Berlanti and "No Ordinary Family" executive producer Ali Adler are working on the new series which Warner Bros. TV will produce.  »

Supergirl TV Series Won’t Be On The CW

4 September 2014 8:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yesterday, we heard a rumor that DC Comics writer and Gotham producer Michael Green was pitching a Supergirl TV series. I was admittedly a bit skeptical about the report, but today several of the trades announced the news themselves and offered several pieces of key information.

First and foremost, Deadline reports that Michael Green will not be involved in the series. Instead, The Flash producer Greg Berlanti has teamed with No Ordinary Family‘s Ali Adler for “a new interpretation of the Supergirl character and her story.” Adler will pen the script, while DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns is expected to have some part in its development as well.

Despite Berlanti’s involvement, Supergirl isn’t likely to join Arrow and The Flash on the CW. According to E! Online, the CW was the first network pitched for the series, but they apparently turned Berlanti and Adler down. »

'Supergirl' is getting her own TV series now

4 September 2014 5:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Supergirl" is taking flight on the small screen. "Arrow" and "The Flash" co-creator Greg Berlanti is developing a TV series based around the DC superhero for Warner Bros. Television, according to Deadline. Ali Adler, who worked on Berlanti's defunct ABC show "No Ordinary Family," is writing the script for the new series which is being described as a "new interpretation" of the classic character. Also involved is DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, who has worked on both "Arrow" and its upcoming spinoff series "The Flash." Created by writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino in 1959, Supergirl has served as the moniker of a number of different DC characters over the years, the most famous being Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El. That version of the character was the subject of a poorly-received 1984 film starring Helen Slater (pictured in all her glory above). In addition to "Arrow" and "The Flash," other »

Supergirl TV Series in Works From Greg Berlanti, Warner Bros. TV

4 September 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Supergirl may be winging her way to the small screen.

Greg Berlanti is said to be developing a series focusing on the Supergirl character, a cousin of the Man of Steel in the DC Comics orbit. According to Deadline, Berlanti is working on a fresh take on Supergirl with Allison Adler, a writer who previously worked on Berlanti’s 2010 ABC drama “No Ordinary Family.”

Warner Bros. TV would not comment. Project is in the nascent stages and has yet to be shopped to networks. Berlanti has become DC’s go-to guy for TV adaptations, as he is shepherding the CW’s “Arrow” and the upcoming “The Flash” with Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim.

Adler is also an alum of “Glee” who co-created the NBC comedy “The New Normal’ with Ryan Murphy.

'Supergirl' TV Show Happening with 'Arrow' and 'Flash' Producer

4 September 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, it was rumored that Smallville's Michael Green is currently writing and producing a Supergirl TV pilot with DC Entertainment set to pitch it to various different networks soon. Deadline confirms part of the story is true; the show is in development. But it is Arrow and The Flash producer Greg Berlanti who is moving forward with the series, not Michael Green, who is not involved in any capacity.

Greg Berlanti has teamed with his No Ordinary Family partner Ali Adler for this new iteration of Supergirl, which won't be a continuation of Laura Vandervoort's character from Smallville. Instead, this version will put a new spin on Supergirl's origins, and is rumored to be based on the mythology laid out in the New 52 comics. Unlike the original comics, the New 52 reboot initially didn't include any mention of Kara Zor-El's cousin, Superman, but the comic eventually delved into her own planet, »

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

4 September 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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. As 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 »
