Coleen Atwood said that she wanted to capture the costume so that it could embrace the past and so that she could thrust her into the street-style action hero of today. The pilot of the show is for executive producers/writers Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and Kreisberg. The show will be produced by Berlanti Productions in an association with Warner Bros. Television.
