The president of The CW, Mark Pedowitz, regrets not going after Supergirl last summer. The show was presented to The CW but the networked passed on the project.
“We hadn’t launched The Flash yet, we weren’t ready to take on another DC property. In hindsight we probably should’ve gone that direction… Sometime you lose great shows.”
Deadline is reporting that Pedowitz is very open to a Supergirl – Flash – Arrow crossover. “I leave that to (Supergirl/Arrow/Flash executive producer) Greg Berlanti if they can make it work. I’m open to crossovers,” said Pedowitz.
Supergirl always seemed like the perfect show to add to the CW’s already expanding world of superheroes who may not survive at the cinema. The jury is still out on whether or not the series is any good, but we will see soon enough. Supergirl premieres on CBS October 26.
