Melissa Benoist Renews Overall Deal With Warner Bros. TV As She Officially Boards ‘The Girls On The Bus’

By Peter White

https://deadline.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/pjimage-12.jpg

Melissa Benoist and her production banner Three Things Productions has renewed its overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group as the former Supergirl star officially joins HBO Max series The Girls on the Bus.

Deadline revealed in February that Benoist was in talks to reunite with Berlanti Productions for the political campaign drama series.

It’s confirmed that she will star as Sadie McCarthy, a journalist who romanticizes Tim Crouse’s Boys on the Bus book and who scrapped her whole life for her own shot at covering a presidential campaign for the paper of record.

Sadie hits the trail and eventually bonds with three female competitors. Despite their differences, the women become a found family with a front-row seat to the greatest soap opera in town: the battle for the White House.

The series comes from executive producers and writers Amy Chozick and Julie Plec, inspired by a chapter in Chozick’s book Chasing Hillary. Benoist will serve as a producer on the series, which is exec produced by showrunner Rina Mimoun, Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.

Benoist’s new overall deal comes just over a year after she signed her first overall deal with the studio. She launched Three Things Productions with the WB pact in February 2021, coming off the back of six seasons of the superhero series.

The deal will see her and Sahar Kashi, VP Development, continue to develop and produce dramas, comedies and limited series for Warner Bros Discovery’s HBO Max, rival streamers, cable and broadcast networks.

Benoist is represented by UTA, Anonymous Content and Frankfurt Kurnit

Melissa Benoist to Star in HBO Max's The Girls on the Bus, Inspired by Memoir About Hillary Clinton Campaign Trail

By Andy Swift / June 28 2022,

https://tvline.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/melissa-benoist.jpg

Melissa Benoist has now officially set her first series-regular TV role since hanging up her cape last year.

The actress formerly known as Kara Danvers is now confirmed to star in HBO Max and Warner Bros. Television’s upcoming drama The Girls on the Bus, reuniting her with Supergirl executive producer Greg Berlanti. The series is inspired by a chapter in Amy Chozick’s 2018 novel Chasing Hillary, which was based on the author’s time covering Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign as a political reporter.

Benoist will play Sadie McCarthy, “a journalist who romanticizes the original ‘Boys on the Bus’ and who scrapped her whole life for her own shot at covering a presidential campaign for the paper of record. Sadie hits the trail and eventually bonds with three female competitors,” per the official logline. “Despite their differences, these women become a found family with a front-row seat to the greatest soap opera in town: the battle for the White House.”

The series was developed by Chozick and Julie Plec, both of whom will executive-produce alongside showrunner Rina Mimoun, as well as Berlanti and Sarah Schechter for Berlanti Productions.

Warner Bros. Television Group has also renewed its overall deal with Benoist and her production company, Three Things Productions. Under the exclusive, multi-year agreement, Benoist and Three Things — including Sahar Kashi, Vice President of Development — “will continue to develop and produce new television dramas, comedies, limited series and more for Warner Bros. Discovery’s HBO Max, as well as external streaming services, cable and the broadcast networks.”

The Girls on the Bus has traveled a winding road to get on the air: It was first ordered by Netflix in 2019, then quietly dropped and picked back up by The CW. HBO Max handed it a straight-to-series order in February of this year.

Casting news for Girls on the Bus. Mark Consuelos will portray a major Hollywood action star-turned-politician who joined the presidential race after a Twitter poll said 46 percent of Americans would vote for him — regardless of party affiliation. This is a recurring role.

So the bus in Girls on the Bus is the #61.

Hope, Help and Compassion for all

That's a great number! The first thing that comes to my mind is the year 1961 when Roger Maris broke Ruth's record with 61 home runs. And we had JFK in the white house with his commitment to go to the moon and back before the decade was over. It's a good omen.;) Can't wait for the show to air.

Thanks again for the updates Comic Fan. 10 episodes is on the higher side for an HBO/Max series which are in my experience are 7-12 episodes. With the “Pilot” taking as long as it did to film I’m hoping for hour long episodes. Most HBO/Max series episodes are hour long but some are half hour, notably Hacks. HBO/Max series will also often have “inside” the episode features.

Thank for posting Comic Fan! I think it will help me that Sadie and Kara look different. Sometimes when an actor plays a part for a long time it takes some adjustment seeing them play a new character. It does seem Sadie will share Melissa’s smile with Kara and I wouldn’t want that any other way.

Glad to see they’re having fun on the set. I think it was Kevin Smith that said the Supergirl set was great because Melissa as number one on the call sheet set the tone.

Good to know filming has started hopefully we’ll see Girls on the Bus sooner rather than later next year. Thanks for the updates Comic Fan, I don’t do IG or Twitter so I appreciate that you do and post.


I would imagine the show will premiere sometime next year on HBO Max or whatever the new name the streamer is once it merges with Discovery + next summer..

From yesterday.

The article also says Tala Ashe who played Zari Tomaz and Zari Tarazi on LoT will have a reoccurring role. I didn’t watch LoT so I don’t know all or even most of the actors names but someone on a different site pointed it out.

More casting news is a strong indicator that “Girls on the Bus” is moving forward. From what I’ve been reading HBO Max isn’t stopping all scripted content. They’re getting out of the kids/family entertainment business and are keeping a tight reign on DC content. The new management also wants to release movies in theaters instead of making them strictly as streaming content. Since none of that applies to “Girls on the Bus” I think it should be ok.
