MONDAYS – With THURSDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL premiering Sept. 17, the Network will once again move THE BIG BANG THEORY to 8:00 PM to start the season, providing a potent lead-in to the new comedy LIFE IN PIECES. When THE BIG BANG THEORY and LIFE IN PIECES move to their regular Thursday time periods after football, the new action-adventure drama SUPERGIRL will open Monday at 8:00 PM. The action-packed evening continues with the high-octane dramas SCORPION at 9:00 PM and NCIS: LOS ANGELES at 10:00 PM.
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter (“Arrow”).

Supergirl officially has liftoff at CBS, with the network handing the Greg Berlanti adaptation a formal series order for the 2015-16 TV season.
The much-hyped project — written and EP’d by Berlanti, Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg — stars Glee‘s Melissa Benoist as the title character, AKA Kara Zor-El. Since arriving on Earth from Krypton years ago, Kara’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
The cast also includes Mehcad Brooks (Desperate Housewives), Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal), Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy) and Jeremy Jordan (Smash).
