Headey dons superhero threads for CBS

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.

I would have thought that they would cast a younger actress. I hope Lena Headey is great because Barbara Hall has been impressive so far, but Lena's mentioned credits don't do much for her.

It sounds interesting I might watch it, there needs to be more shows with a strong female lead.

I'm looking forward to this show. I loved Joan of Arcadia and have been looking forward to a new female lead show since Buffy.
