Oscar winner Diablo Cody is teaming with former Veronica Mars and Sleepy Hollow writer Heather Regnier to pen the adult live-action take on Powerpuff Girls for Greg Berlanti's Berlanti Productions. The Powerpuff Girls was created by Craig McCracken for Cartoon Network. "In the updated version of the series, the titular superheroes are now disillusioned twentysomethings who resent having lost their childhood to crime fighting. Will they agree to reunite now that the world needs them more than ever?" per Variety. As Variety's Joe Otterson notes, "Should the show go to series, it would check multiple boxes for The CW. The network and Berlanti have built up a large swath of superhero programming via the DC Universe, while also placing an emphasis on representation for people of color and women onscreen. The CW has also found great success in programming more adult-themed reboots of beloved IP, such as what they did with the Archie Comics franchise and Riverdale, another Berlanti production."
