CBS has given more information today about their upcoming Supergirl series.
Starring Melissa Benoit (Glee, Whiplash), this show will begin where the heroine begins as she dons her cape and embraces her powers. Fans need not fear as the show is also in the hands of producer Greg Berlanti. Berlanti, no stranger to the DC universe, has creative influence in both Arrow and Flash.
Other stars in the ensemble include Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant and Mechad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen. There’s even reports of former Superman Dean Cain and the original Supergirl Helen Slater as guest stars.
