#Supergirl Ordered to Series at CBS

CBS has kicked off its fall 2015 freshmen slate with the series pickup of Supergirl.

Not that it comes as any real shock considering the hype the show has been receiving or the success of DC Comics on television, which includes fellow Greg Berlanti-produced shows Arrow and The Flash.

Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist, centers around Kara Zor-El, who escaped her home planet of Krypton following its destruction years ago. She arrived on Earth where she hid the powers that she shares with her famous cousin, Superman. Now 24, Kara has decided to finally embrace her powers and be a hero.

The series, produced by Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter, also stars Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks and David Harewood.

We will learn where Supergirl lands on the CBS Fall 2015 schedule during network up fronts next Wednesday, May 13.
