‘Supergirl,’ ‘D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Land at Australia’s Foxtel

Australia’s Foxtel has nabbed rights to “Supergirl” and “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” for its Fox8 channel in a licensing pact with Warner Bros. Television.

Fox8 already carries “Arrow” and “The Flash,” the D.C. Comics cousins of “Legends of Tomorrow.” “Supergirl,” another D.C. property that is bound for CBS this fall, is a natural fit with the superhero cluster.

“Supergirl” will premiere in Australia on Dec. 6, six weeks after the Greg Berlanti-produced drama takes flight on CBS. “Legends of Tomorrow” is slated for early 2016, as it is a midseason entry for the CW.

Underscoring the strong demand for superhero-branded properties that travel well around the world, “The Flash” and “Arrow” are among Fox8’s most-watched series.
