Stargirl, the DC series arrives in prime time on Rai4


Stargirl is the TV series created by Geoff Johns based on the characters of the DC comics, which fits exactly halfway between the new production such as Titans, Doom Patrol, Swamp Thing and those belonging to the so-called Arrowverse. Rai4 has now confirmed that the first season will be broadcast in the clear every Monday in prime time, more precisely starting from 19 July 2021 at 21:20, also available in streaming on Rai Play. A little further down, the tweet published by the Italian television station, accompanied by a short trailer.

The first Stargirl season consists of 13 episodes and is inspired by the adventures of Courtney Whitmore, a character created by Geoff Johns in collaboration with Lee Moder. The series premiered May 18, 2020 on the DC Universe streaming service and the following day on The CW broadcaster.

Produced by Berlanti Productions, Mad Ghost Productions, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television Studios, the series sees the starring Sarah Schechter, Glen Winter, Greg Beeman, Melissa Carter, Greg Berlanti and Geoff Johns as executive producers. The main cast features Brec Bassinger (Courtney Whitmore / Stargirl) Yvette Monreal (Yolanda Montez / Wildcat) and Anjelika Washington (Beth Chapel / Doctor Mid-Nite), as well as Cameron Gellman (Rick Tyler / Hourman) and Trae Romano ( Mike Dugan).

The character of Stargirl was created in 1999 Johns shortly after working as an assistant to the late Richard Donner (who died just a few days ago at the age of 91) on the set of Plot Hypothesis. On that occasion, Geoff met Chuck Kim, at the time a member of the DC Comics management team, who offered him to put his ideas on paper.

His first comic series was titled Stars & STRIPE but it only lasted 15 issues, a relatively short duration for a DC Comics magazine, but which certainly served Geoff Johns to start a prolific career in the world of US comics (thanks also to the release of JSA, which you can find on offer here). br>

SINGER/songwriter Naomi Cowan is beaming with delight from the reception to her second mixtape StarGirl.

“So far, I think more than anything, the feedback I've been getting is a lot of people have been saying, 'Wow, I really feel like I know you now. I feel your personality shining,' and that is the best feedback I could get. For me, authenticity is important. A good friend of mine reached out and said, 'You sound much older, you're singing about things you've never sang about before and there's a lot more honesty on there'…deejays have been reaching out to say 'Excellent work.' They've really been praising the musical diversity of it,” she told the Jamaica Observer's Splash.

Released a week ago, the project consisted 33 tracks. Walshy Fire of Major Lazer is credited as executive producer.

Cowan said she has already exceeded her goals for the StarGirl mixtape.

“What I hoped to achieve from the project has already been achieved. The goal was to put it out there for people to enjoy so I am happy. That's what I am most happy about; we finished, we finished strong, and it sounds amazing and now we can get to share some of the moments behind the process. We are creating a whole different world around this project. If you go on my Instagram, you'll notice there's a theme in terms of the visuals and aesthetics. Walshy and I also have a lot of fun. We have these little videos and skits that are just playful, funny type of things; so I am satisfied. The ultimate hope has already been achieved,” she explained.

Her debut mixtape, Paradise Plum, was released in 2018.

The singer noted that the second mixtape features a wider range of genres.

“I describe it (the mixtape) as a musical journey because we start off with some old-school reggae and it goes into everything from pop to Afrobeat to dancehall. There's a track on there produced by Sean Paul's label which is Dutty Rock Productions. So, I have a wide variety of music on there and myself and Walshy really wanted the project to really give an idea as to who I am, and show my ability and diversity as an artiste,” Cowan told the Observer.

Cowan, who is in her 20s, launched her recording career in 2015 with the songs Naked and Prepare (Ye The Way). In 2017, she covered Things You Say You Love, the original being a big hit in 1967 for The Jamaicans, a rocksteady group, in which her father, Tommy Cowan, was a member. Her hit single Paradise Plum (2018) formed part of the 2019 Reggae Gold Album.
