That Hashtag Show reports Kathy Kane will be a lesbian in the show, in keeping with the comics. During the Pre-Crisis comics, Batwoman did have a crush on Batman, but after the Post-Crisis, DC would write her as being gay.

Batwoman is said to take place in Gotham City, but whether or not Batman exists is unknown. The chances are good we’ll see an Arrow crossover in the near future, which would lead into her own series.

Batwoman's first appearance
“Look, Batman, she’s endangering civilians’ lives with her reckless driving … like we usually do!”

Caroline Dries is writer and executive producer of the pilot. She’s best known for her work as a writer on Smallville and The Vampire Diaries. Greg Berlanti will serve as an executive producer on the series.

As the synopsis states:

“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. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
