According to Deadline, Stargirl is one of writer/executive producer Geoff Johns' pet projects, making it likely one of the shows that the new service will put much of its faith in to prove its worth to fans.

Courtney Whitmore is smart, athletic and above all else kind. "After searching far and wide I can say there is no other actor on the planet that embodies her more than Brec Bassinger". Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero.

Live-action versions of the character have previously been played by Sarah Grey (on Legends of Tomorrow) and Britt Irvin (on Smallville). She also discovers an artifact of huge power, a long-lost hero's cosmic staff, and Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.

Referring to Stargirl's alter ego, Johns said that 'Brec's warmth, strength, humor and positive energy are core to who Courtney Whitmore is'.

In addition to Bella & the Bulldogs, Bassinger also starred in Hulu's All Night, and has appeared on The Haunted Hathaways, School of Rock, The Goldbergs and, most recently, CBS' Code Black. This series is not to be confused with Disney's forthcoming Stargirl, based on the young adult novels from Jerry Spinelli first published in 2000.

Whitmore took over the mantle of the Star-Spangled Kid (her stepdad) in her debut, lending her effervescence to the crime-fighting cause as yet another costumed high-schooler with powers like Robin: a hyper-motivated, tough-as-nails teen.

Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are executive producing the series alongside Johns.

The DC Universe service will also offer classic TV series and films, a curated selection of digital comic books, breaking news, an expansive DC-centric encyclopedia, and access to exclusive merchandise. But the series seems like it will be the polar opposite of the previous dark offerings like Titans and Doom Patrol, following the ordinary high school teenager named Courtney Whitmore as she bands together with the Justice Society of America to fight villains from the past and present. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions and Mad Ghost Productions in association with Warner Bros Television.
