Melissa Benoist In Talks To Star In ‘Girls On the Bus’ HBO Max Series – Deadline
Sounds right up her ally! Melissa playing another journalist though is kind of funny
Nice, sounds like it could be a good role for her. Hope it turns out well.
Hopefully the show is good. She deserved better than Supergirl.
I wouldn’t be surprised if her company Three Things Production becomes a producer too. The company signed a deal with Warner Brothers which is the studio involved. If that happens she’ll get producer credit and money too.
Melissa did an IG live event with Jo Whittemore who’s the author of the trilogy of middle school books inspired by the show. sljournal’s Middle Grade Magic free virtual event, and you’re invited! I’ll be talking with #Supergirl @MelissaBenoist about Haven’s Secret and our ?love of libraries? Here’s the whole thing. It’s all fun but for those who want to skip through from 4:55-8:55 they’re talking about Supergirl and Melissa talks about what she’s working on at 20:00. She talks about hopefully shooting a new TV show in the fall and her production company. She and her sister are also working on the next book in the series.
I guess the "in talks" talks went well. It's now confirmed.
Melissa’s going to be a producer too, My guess is that’s what held things up things.

A new chapter for Melissa and Chris.
Some updates for Girls on the Bus. Melissa’s costars will be Natasha Behnam (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), and Christina Elmore (The Last Ship) with a fourth roll yet to be cast. The main character in the series (played by Benoist) is deeply affected by the famous non-fiction book "The Boys on the Bus" from Tim Crouse, a memoir in which he chronicled what it was like to cover the 1972 presidential election on the road with other journalists. story, and decides to do something similar with her life. The series was inspired by a chapter from writer and executive producer Amy Chozick's book, "Chasing Hillary."

Back to her natural hair colour. I do prefer her as a blonde though.
Going from brunette to blond is time consuming, often damaging, and not to mention expensive. CW likely covered the cost during Supergirl’s run. Touch ups can mean three or so hours in the stylist chair every 3-4 weeks, which might have been built into production time for Supergirl. I’d bet part of the reason she cut so much off after Supergirl ended was to get rid of the damaged ends.
since this isn't about Supergirl, perhaps a thread for the franchise would be better suited?
