WB Birds Of Prey
From Comics Continuum:
Birds of Prey stars Dina Meyer, Ashley Scott and Rachel Skarsten as Oracle, Huntress and Black Canary, respectively. It will air at 9 p.m., following Dawson's Creek, on Wednesdays.
The series is executive produced by Smallville executive producers Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola, along with Laeta Kalogridis.
"The Birds of Prey pilot delivers a powerful cinematic feel, with big-screen effects, non-stop action and real breakout potential for the three female stars," said Jordan Levin, President, Entertainment, The WB. "We enjoyed tremendous success this year with Smallville, another DC Comics franchise from Tollin/Robbins, and see similarly great potential from this romp about Batgirl and her two sexy protégés."
Here's how The WB describes the show:
"The Batman legend is about to take a very unexpected turn. With Birds of Prey, the producers of Smallville masterfully combine the human drama of their hit WB series with a stunning cinematic visual style.
"It begins with New Gotham in chaos. In one night, Catwoman is murdered and Batgirl falls in a rain of gunfire, victims of The Joker's wrath. With his true love dead, The Caped Crusader flees the city and Batgirl, now confined to a wheelchair, redefines herself as Oracle (Dina Meyer, Beverly Hills, 90210), a master of cybernetics and weapons design. She takes under her wing the secret daughter of Batman and Catwoman, Huntress (Ashley Scott, Dark Angel), who is as fierce as she is beautiful. Powerful, haunting visions lead a third young woman, Dinah (Rachel Skarsten, Virginia's Run), to their secret Clock Tower lair. The trio is complete. They are now the Birds of Prey, determined to battle crime in a New Gotham laced with bold new villains. Shemar Moore (The Brothers) and Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) also star."
Moore plays Detective Reese and Fenn plays Dr. Harleen Quinn in the pilot.
