Melissa Benoit's 'Supergirl' CBS Pilot Leaked

The pilot episode of CBS’s new ‘Supergirl’ has been leaked online. Starring Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, aka Kara Zor-El, ‘Supergirl’ will be CBS’ biggest new show, writes Forbes.

Benoist is also joined by Mehcad Brooks, Calista Flockhart, David Harewood, Chyler Leigh and Laura Benanti. Flockhart, who came to fame as Ally McBeal and is married to Harrison Ford, plays Kara’s boss Cat Grant, who in the trailer is a ‘Devil Wears Prada’ vision of Anna Wintour with more sex appeal. Cat Grant is a self-made media magnate, who started her career as a reporter and has now built her company CatCo into a global powerhouse. 

Downloiads aren’t going as fast as expected, writes Business Insider. Leaked late Thursday night, it’s estimated that 250,000 downloads will be done by Sunday noon. In 2014, HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ had the dubious honor of being TV’s most pirated TV show with 48.4 million downloads.

Writing for io9, Rob Bricken gives an in-depth, positive review of ‘Supergirl’.
