DC Universe’s planned series adaptation of the comic “Stargirl” has finished its casting with Amy Smart, Neil Jackson, Hunter Sansone and Trae Romano all taking series regular roles.
The story follows high school teenager Courtney Whitmore whose seemingly perfect life hits a major speed bump when she’s moved to Nebraska.
Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret – he used to be the sidekick to a superhero with a cosmic staff which she borrows and becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
Smart will play Barbara Whitmore, Courtney’s mother, while Romano is Courtney’s step brother. Jackson and Sansone’s roles are under wraps.
Brec Bessinger, Anjelika Washington, Joel McHale, Henry Thomas and Giancarlo Esposito also star. Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Melissa Carter are executive producers and Johns is writing the first episode as well.
