‘Supergirl’ Grad Melissa Benoist Near Deal To Star in ‘Girls On The Bus’

Melissa Benoist is near a deal to star in HBO Max’s newly ordered drama series The Girls on the Bus, from exec producers Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec. The casting reunites the actress with Berlanti after she spent six seasons wearing the cape as the lead of CBS-turned-The CW’s Supergirl.

Benoist is expected to play one of the four central journalists.
