CBS President on Supergirl

Nina Tassler, CBS' President, had some insites to give on Supergirl during the CBS panel at the Television Critics Association's Winter Press event.  Here's what we learned:

We’re watching an evolution with regard to the way superhero characters are portrayed."
"There’s a humanity, they’re flawed, there’s a relatability."
"These are all things that made [Supergirl] imminently relatable and made the story exciting, made it an adventure.”
"We heard the pitch and realized she embodied so many of the qualities and characteristics of the classic female heroines on the network."
"It’s a story and coming-of-age opportunity for us. We fell in love with the pitch.

Not a whole lot there, but what does sound promising is that CBS is giving its full support to do the show right.  Comments?  Let us know what you think below!
