The CW has officially picked up the Batwoman series after star Ruby Rose impressed DC fans with her performance in the stellar Elseworlds crossover recently. The pilot is set to be directed by Emmy Award winning director David Nutter who has helmed the pilots for shows such as The Flash and Supergirl. Nutter has also worked on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
The series description is as follows: “Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane [Rose] soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
The series is slated to premiere on The CW as part of the network’s scheduled Fall 2019 programming. Greg Berlanti is attached to the production.
