Star Girl has found its star in Brec Bassinger (Bella & The Bulldogs) as DC Universe announces its presence.
DC Universe launched Saturday and hopes to entice fans to pay $7.99 a month for access to comics, films and TV shows.
Geoff Johns, show writer and executive producer created the character of Star Girl/Courtney Whitmore in 1999.
“There is no other character in comic books more special to me than Stargirl, and after searching far and wide I can say there is no other actor on the planet that embodies her more than Brec Bassinger,” Johns said. “Brec’s warmth, strength, humor and positive energy are core to who Courtney Whitmore is. I’m so grateful she’s signed on for the role.”
Whitmore’s smooth-going high school experience is derailed when her mother marries and moves the household from Los Angeles to bucolic Blue Valley in distant Nebraska. Struggling to adapt, Courtney discovers her stepfather has a secret past as a superhero sidekick. She also discovers an artifact of immense power, a long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, and Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
The series is produced by Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros Television.
