A Supergirl TV series is underway at CBS, and now character descriptions for two characters reveal key details.
TV Line provided the following which gives a potential look at what fans can look forward to once the Supergirl series hits the air waves.
Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers: The show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series’ mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.
26-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Danvers: Kara’s gorgeous, brilliant, science-minded foster sister. Growing up, Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.
Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow) are writing the Supergirl pilot and will serve as executive producers with Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros. TV.
