Surprising in that it hasn’t happened already, The CW has given a pilot order for a new Batwoman series starring “Orange Is the New Black” alum Ruby Rose.
The latest iteration of Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, is described as an out lesbian and highly trained fighter who has no trouble speaking her mind. She’s pressed into service as a crime-fighter as mayhem overruns Gotham, although Kane has to ‘overcome her own demons’ before she can save the city.
Rose made her debut as the character in last month’s DC Crossover episodes. “Vampire Diaries” alum Caroline Dries penned the story for those episodes and will write the pilot, while David Nutter will helm it and Greg Berlanti will executive produce.
