"Batwoman" will be the first TV series focused on an LGBT superhero, reported Entertainment Weekly.
The character will officially make an appearance at The CW's annual DC crossover event of its shows -- "The Flash", "Arrow", "Legends of Tomorrow" and "Supergirl".
The series will revolve around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence.
The network had recently hired Greg Berlanti to develop the TV series.
"This is a childhood dream. This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on TV and felt alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god," she wrote.
