Ultra Comic Book to the Tube

Variety reports that CBS has greenlit a pilot from Joan of Arcadia creator Barbara Hall based on the comic book Ultra.

Ultra, from CBS Paramount Network TV, revolves around a female superhero who must contend with saving the world while pursuing a life as a single girl in the city. In the comic book, which parodies celebrity magazines, Ultra’s alter ego, Pearl Penalosa, is a semi-icon who graces billboards advertising popular products.

Hall, whose other credits include Judging Amy, will executive produce the pilot; David Engel and David Alpert are co-executive producers.
