The project will also include Greg Berlanti, a producer who has previously worked on superhero TV series "The Flash", "Green Lantern" and "Legends of Tomorrow".
President Sarah Kate Ellis said Berlanti had "amassed a track record of telling diverse and powerful LGBTQ stories, so it is not surprising he is a driving force behind Batwoman".
Batwoman is being overseen by producer Greg Berlanti, and written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries).
Together with her father - and inspired by Batman's image - Kate takes to the streets as Batwoman, utilising her military expertise to fight crime in her own way.
Trump to talk to Russia’s Putin about substantially…
Trump told reporters he plans to raise election meddling with Putin but said he doesn't expect Putin to ever accept blame. The White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News on Friday afternoon that the summit is "still on".
Of course, the series will need to be picked up from its pilot for it to last. Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, would be the first gay lead character of a live-action superhero show.
Those who keep up with all things DC already know that the Kate Kane iteration of Batwoman is set to make her screen debut in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event - which unites the characters of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl - that's scheduled to premiere this December.
In recent years, Batwoman (real name Katherine Kane) has become a big part of the extended Batman family.
This will be the first time the character has been depicted on screen ever. Geoff Johns, who recently stepped down as the head of DC Entertainment, will also executive produce through his Mad Ghost Productions banner.
The US charity GLAAD, which campaigns for LGBT representation in the media, welcomed the prospect of more gay characters on television. It looks as if they are expecting the appearance to go well as they are now planning to give her a show of her own! In fact, Batwoman was one of the most popular books of the early New 52 era before the creative team of W. Haden Blackman and J.H. Williams III left the book after DC refused to let Batwoman marry Maggie Sawyer.
