Cat began her career as a gossip columnist only weeks fresh from a divorce and move, she¬†has built her company into a global powerhouse. Catherine ‘Cat’ Grant has been a part of DC comic fodder since 1987 and her story crosses with Superman’s as a potential love interest adding dimension to the Superman-Lois Lane dynamic. Her character has been a part of other televised Super-canon such as ‘Smallville‘ and ‘Lois and Clark‘.

The series will follow Superman’s cousin, Kara as she decides to embrace her super-abilities and be the hero she was born to be by learning from her cousin’s example. Flockhart joins Benoist in a cast that also includes Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Laura Bernanti as Kara’s mother.
