David Nutter, who has helmed Game of Thrones, Arrow and The Flash, directed the Batwoman series pilot. Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) serves as the showrunner for the series. Ruby Rose (The Meg, Orange is the New Black) appeared as Batwoman in The CW’s three-episode Elseworlds crossover in December 2018.
Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly-trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
Caroline Dries is executive producer and writer of the Batwoman series, which is also executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, and Nutter.

The series comes from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.
In a timeless New York City, as enchanting as Riverdale is moody, aspiring fashion designer Katy Keene (Lucy Hale) meets Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), fresh off the bus to chase her musical dreams. Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith (Julie Chan) and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez – and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.
Nancy Drew is executive produced and written by Noga Landau, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. The director and co-executive producer is Larry Teng. Melinda Hsu Taylor and Lis Rowinski are also executive producing. The series comes from CBS Television Studios in association with Fake Empire.
Set in the summer after her high school graduation, 18-year-old Nancy Drew (Kennedy McMann) thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation — and along the way, uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined.
