UPDATE 9/19 – CBS is confirmed to have picked up the show with a series commitment. The terms of the deal have not been announced, but several sites, including Crave Online, have rumors the deal is close to or larger than Fox’s Gotham deal.

ORIGINAL STORY – Deadline is reporting that Greg Berlanti is developing a potential Supergirl series for DC’s television slate.

The show, which is still in its planning stages and has no name, will be a collaboration between Berlanti and Ali Adler, who previously worked with ABC’s No Ordinary Family. It will be pitched to a variety of networks.

The show hopes to join the success of CW’s Arrow, which jumpstarted DC’s television success. Four of its comic properties are getting series this upcoming television season – The Flash, Constantine, Gotham, and iZombie.

DC exec Geoff Johns is reported to be involved with the project, though his capacity has not been announced. Adler will script with Berlanti Co. producing through WBTV.
