Lena Headey will play a single, city-girl superhero in Barbara Hall's comic book-based drama pilot Ultra for CBS. The comic book features lead character Pearl Penalosa as a model who must juggle saving the world with her love life. The series takes a satirical look at modern life and parodies pop-culture.
Headey is currently onscreen in the feature Imagine Me & You, and appeared last year in The Brothers Grimm. The English-born actor's previous monster-fighting credits include The Cave.
Barbara Hall is the creator of the series Joan of Arcadia and developed Judging Amy.
