First Look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum on SUPERGIRL

Earlier this month, Jenna Dewan-Tatum (The Mindy Project, Step Up) was cast for a recurring role as Lucy Lane on Supergirl and today the producers have released their first photo of her in the role:

The character has been described as: “Strong, smart and successful in her own right. She’s got a history with Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and she’s come to town to right a previous wrong.” 

Along with the picture, Executive Producer Ali Adler has elaborated on Lucy’s character.  “We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen. I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.

There’s a lot that can be read in to several points of Adler’s statement.  First and foremost is the role Lucy’s father had in giving Lucy powers and asking her to take on the persona of Superwoman.  In addition to being a friend for Kara, Lucy could be another potential link to Clark and Lois. She could even play a part in Kara’s hunt for the Phantom Zone escapees that will drive the series along initially.

Dewan-Tatum will join the cast of Supergirl in episode three entitled; “Fight or Flight” and is expected to air in November.

Supergirl airs Monday Nights at 8E on CBS starting October 26th, 2015
