Check out a first look at Lucy Lane in the CBS Supergirl TV series.
EW.com debuted the image of Jenna Dewan-Tatum playing Lucy Lane alongside Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen and Melissa Benoist as Kara.
Lucy Lane, the younger sister to Lois Lane, is described in the series as: “strong, smart and successful in her own right. She’s got a history with Jimmy Olsen and she’s come to town to right a previous wrong.”
“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” executive producer Ali Adler teased. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”
Lucy Lane’s father happens to be General Sam Lane, and in the comics, Lucy Lane becomes Superwoman with her costume featuring a containment field that simulated Kryptonian powers.
“Supergirl” premieres Monday, October 26 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
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 planetKrypton 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 tohelp 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.
