Time to shed some light in our dark world
DC TV‘s latest addition to their stable of superhero adaptations on the small screen adds the character of Courtney Whitmore, Stargirl which will premiere today at 7pm tonight.
For those who are unfamiliar with the female character, Stargirl serves more like a prequel story to the superheroine as the series focuses on her story when she gets to use the Cosmic Rod, Starman‘s signature equipment.
Running at thirteen-episodes, the series follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to take up the legacy of a long-lost superhero team – The Justice Society of America – and stop the villains of the past.
Brec Bassinger (Bella and the Bulldogs, School of Rock) stars as Courtney Whitmore a.k.a. Stargirl, the new kid in town and Blue Valley High, who struggles to make friends until she forges unlikely friendships with Yolanda Montez, Beth Chapel and Rick Tyler, all with super-powers.
Yvette Monreal (Rambo: Last Blood, Matador) stars as Yolanda Montez a.k.a. Wildcat, a straight A student at Blue Valley High who never does anything wrong, until she is put in a situation in which she has no control.
Anjelika Washington (Young Sheldon, Shameless) stars as Beth Chapel a.k.a. Dr. Mid-Nite, an outcast who befriends Courtney and the other members of the new Justice Society of America.
Cameron Gellman (The Good Doctor, 20th Century Women) stars as Rick Tyler a.k.a. Hourman.
Other cast members include Trae Romano (Robbie, The Three Stooges), Jake Austin Walker (Lethal Weapon, Fear the Walking Dead), Hunter Sansone (Unfollowed, Little Did He Know), Meg DeLacy (The Fosters, Zac and Mia), Neil Jackson (Westworld, Blade), Christopher James Baker (True Detective, Gotham), Amy Smart (The Butterfly Effect, Shameless) and Luke Wilson (Zombieland: Double Tap, Roadies). The series is created and written by Geoff Johns. Johns executive produces along with Primetime Emmy nominee Greg Berlanti (Love, Simon, Blindspot, Arrow), Melissa Carter (Famous in Love, Queen Sugar), Greg Beenma (Smallville, Falling Skies) and Sarah Schechter (Blindspot, Arrow).
