“We can’t wait to share this week’s newest TV series – Supergirl! HOOQ subscribers can look forward to new episodes every Tuesday, same day as the US telecast”, said Jane Cruz-Walker, Country Manager of HOOQ Philippines. “This is another exclusive on HOOQ, following last week’s Asia premiere of Ash vs Evil Dead,” she added.

Supergirl is a new Hollywood action-adventure drama series based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (played by Melissa Benoist), Superman’s cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

The story begins as Kara, with the help of her parents, escapes the doomed planet Krypton at the same time as her infant cousin Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and conceals the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, to keep her identity a secret. Now 24 years old, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart). She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) and famous photographer James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret end when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency, enlists her to help them protect National City from sinister threats.

Now with the APEC happening, which probably means that traffic will be doubly worse, and that I’d be staying home the entire week,  I’m glad HOOQ sent me these items to keep me company as I catch up on Supergirl!
