LOS ANGELES, CA (CBS SF/AP) — Wonder Woman has signed on to play the president on “Supergirl.”
Lynda Carter has confirmed on her Twitter account reports of her casting as the commander in chief on the CW series.
The 64-year-old former beauty queen is best known for her role as the title character on the 1970s series, “Wonder Woman.” In 2007, she guest starred on an episode of “Smallville,” the CW series chronicling Superman’s childhood.
“Supergirl” is moving to The CW this fall after CBS decided not to renew the series starring Melissa Benoist.
Its season premiere is set for October 10th, seen locally on KBCW 44 Cable 12.
