Also included is the official series description:
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara
Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of
keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman
abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara
escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as
the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the
Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh),
and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin
in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in
National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe
Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former
photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However,
Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David
Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists
her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats.
Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her
very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as
Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti (“The
,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler,
Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti
Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed
by Glen Winter (“Arrow”).
