The CW network has given a pilot order to a standalone series based on DC superhero character Batwoman.

Actor Ruby Rose, who played the character in The CW’s annual DC crossover Elseworlds, is set to star in the pilot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Nutter, known for directing episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, and The CW’s The Flash and Arrow, will helm the pilot for the potential series.

Caroline Dries, who has penned the script, will serve as the showrunner.


The official description reads, “Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.”

Dries will also executive produce the pilot alongside Nutter, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.
