New Batwoman Series Pilot From The CW To Star Ruby Rose

The CW has given a pilot order to a new spin on Batwoman starring Orange Is the New Black alum Ruby Rose.

Batwoman is shepherded by DC TV overlord Greg Berlanti for Warner Bros. TV and was penned by Vampire Diaries alum Caroline Dries. David Nutter, one of the industry’s most sought-after pilot helmers, is set to direct. Berlanti, Dries, Nutter, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns are exec producers.

The latest iteration of Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, is described as an out lesbian and highly trained fighter who has no trouble speaking her mind. She’s pressed into service as a crime-fighter as mayhem overruns Gotham, although Kane has to “overcome her own demons” before she can save the city, per CW.

Rose made her debut as Batwoman/Kate Kane in last month’s DC Crossover episodes that linked three segs of CW’s Supergirl, Flash and Arrow. Those episodes were a kind of trial balloon for the character. Dries penned the story for the troika of episodes dubbed Elseworlds.
