    So a bit of info about the writing team forming: apparently both a Supergirl writer, and a Legends of Tomorrow writer, are joining the Batwoman team. I think the one from Supergirl was said to have only written a couple of episodes(?), so is quite new, no idea about the one from LoT. Interesting though, wonder if they are going to, or have gotten, a writer from Flash or Arrow - could make a whole set.

    Oh wow, how many writers does a single tv series normally have? Seems like a lot.

    So, writers who's previous work (collectively) includes:

    Vampire Diaries
    Supergirl
    Legends of Tomorrow
    Gotham
    Smallville

    About ten, from what I can find. So far there's seven or eight confirmed here.

    Yea writer rooms arent bad. What bad it when 10 different people work on a movie script and you end up with a Frankenstein's monster of a script. One person writes it and then the studio aint happy so skmeone take another pass. So on and so forth. TV its way more collaborative.

    Guess I'm used to novels and comics, and thinking there's only like 1 or 2 people involved. How interesting that TV and film has so many.

    Films alot of the time only have a couple working together . But alot of studio interference can lead to a movie that had 10+ people get a writers credit.

    Like the MCU for example dont have a huge amount of writer working on alot of there movies. The team of Markus and Mcfeely do alot of stuff. Coogler wrote Black Panther with one other guy. James Gunn might write the GOTG movies on his own iono I've never checked the credits.

    A TV show with alot of writers no big deal. A movie has a bunch its usually a sign of a shit show. But not always, Jumanji welcome to the Jungle had 12 writers get a writing credit. And I thought that was good. But that might have been more actor performance driven then script.

    A Redditor noticed that Kate is wearing the same jacket as Maggie Sawyer:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/BatwomanTV/...me_jacket_lol/

    The quilting on the shoulders makes it clear it's not the exact same specific individual jacket, just the same model, but if this isn't just a coincidence, that can be handwaved as the result of a different universe.

    Each episode gets a certain amount of money from advertisers and streaming rights, like from Netflix. So I don't understand how less episodes translates into more money for each episode.
    I don't think there is a fixed amount for the total series that is divide up among episodes. So like a total budget of $50 million means 10 episodes get $5 million per episode but 20 episode
    only get $2.5 million per episode. Seems like they would have a smaller pile of money if they do less episodes so each episode would still get the same amount of money no matter how many
    episodes they made. Getting less money overall doesn't mean more money for each. Where did you get the idea that less episodes means more money spent on each episode? Is there a site
    that explains how this works?

    The first paragraph completely, and thankfully, kills that stupid narrative floating around that the producers only sought out Rose first without looking at anyone else. I knew that couldn't have been true.

    Same with this, which gets into the realities of casting a bit:

    Dries says that prior to Rose’s involvement, as she and the producers considered other contenders for the role, she had convinced herself that casting a heterosexual actor would be fine as long as Kate Kane remained gay and “super true to the comic.” But after Rose was cast, says Dries, “I was like, ‘Thank God we hired a gay actor to do this!’ That would have been such a mistake not to.”

    New promo:



    A pretty blunt and small-scale example, but that's definitely a showcase of Kate's selflessness in opposition to society's expectations. That's a good sign.
