Melissa Benoist, who appeared on "Glee," has landed the lead role on CBS' "Supergirl" series, has learned.

Benoist will play Kara Zor-El, an alien from Krypton who escaped to Earth during her home planet's destruction. Since arriving on Earth, Kara has hid her powers, but now at 24, she decides to become the superhero she was meant to be.

"Arrow's" Greg Berlanti will write and executive-produce the one-hour drama with Ali Adler. Sarah Schechter will also executive-produce.

Scoop on returning winter shows

Besides "Glee," Benoist co-starred in "Whiplash" last year and can next be seen in "Danny Collins" opposite Al Pacino, Annette Bening and Jennifer Garner.

Oh, wiat, I just remember "The Flash" is on CBS. Crossover, perhaps?

But, it will more than likely be on CW. At least Flash will be. How you do this story without the Kents and of course..Super F'N Man, I have no idea. I thought Ollie's rogues gallery was thin, Kara's even thinner unless they shove Superman's enemies in it. Which will be weird.

Now reviewing Shield, Arrow and the rest of the Fall Superhero TV Line Up. And now the 2015 Oscars.

Flash & Arrow are both on CW. However CW is jointly owned by CBS & Warner With Greg Berlanti involved, it would be a possibility I suppose...but I think they may see how Supergirl fares before that would happen.

Hank Henshaw is a main character so Cyborg Superman is somewhere in there in the future.

CBS is really missing starting out badly with this though. Why make her in her mid 20s? CBS lacks in young female viewers and making Supergirl a teen/high school aged would give them a huge boost in that demographic. There is also far more potential in having her younger in that you can see her grow up and into her powers instead of having her older and already having them. I really hate using Smallville as an example, because the first couple of seasons were pretty bad, but they did do it right by starting him out in high school.

Forget it Josh... it's Cerebustown.

They could always do a crossover with CSI.

The way CSI has gotten, it wouldn't be much of a stretch.

Ugh, I don't trust CBS to do this, honestly.. I actually *hope* it will be on the CW.
