CBS bringing Ultra heroine to screen

CBS has ordered the drama pilots Ultra, based on the comic book series of the same name, and The Way, a supernatural thriller.

Ultra is a fast-paced action-adventure about a single city-girl superhero balancing the demands of greatness with her love life and social calendar. Joan of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall wrote the script.

The Way centers on a powerful New England mob clan that uses witchcraft to further its business enterprises and conquer enemies.

Separately, ABC has ordered two drama pilots, A House Divided and Twenty Questions.

A House Divided explores an escalating conflict between a Midwest farming community and the US government that sows the seeds of what will be the next civil war in present-day America. Twenty Questions centers on an idealistic young State Department employee who inadvertently stumbles onto a deadline conspiracy to undermine the United States.

Ultra sounds good. The superhero story can be excellent if done right and since Barbara Hall is writing it, it probably will. The other ones sound confusing, so I will have to wait to see the previews on TV or a better description.

I think they just threw a whole bunch of pieces of paper into a hat and then started pulling them out to form a premise for a show. We shall see how it goes.
