Clair Holt – known for her role as Rebekah on CW’s The Vampire Diares and The Originals – is one of numerous actresses in contention to play the revered Supergirl in the upcoming CW production.

Greg Berlanti, who already has two hit shows running on the network, is set to produce the show, with a date scheduled for the fall next year. Berlanti has initially locked a 13-episode order, with hopes of locking a further back 9 for a full season. This will obviously depend on how well the show fares. Furthermore, there have been recent discussions regarding Supergirl taking place in the same Universe as Berlanti’s Arrow and The Flash.

Holt has appeared in a string of shows including Pretty Little Liars and H2O: Just Add Water and currently filming for a guest spot on Aquarius. The last time Supergirl was portrayed on the small screen was when Laura Vandervoot played the part on Smallville

Derek Robertson has dabbled in many aspects of the media industry from a young age. He has always had an admiration for, film, science fiction and all things geek-like. Working in the music industry with Sony/BMG Records gave Derek insight and experience into video directing. Thusly, for many years he took a hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach in creating and editing treatments; working with performance artists, writing and producing music and working both; in front of, and behind the camera. Studying a Msc in Forensic Psychology has embedded a conceptual ethos that has spawned his signature writing style that he now infuses whilst blogging for numerous websites; writing music reviews, movie news, and reviewing network shows et al., . Derek continues to try and erase the boundaries between the homogenous and the insanely dull, culturally enmeshing contemporary socio-political aspects into the mix of the monolithic media industry.
