First Look: Upcoming TV show 'Stargirl' was filmed in Atlanta

Douglas County High School got the star treatment.

ATLANTA — We are getting the first glimpse of “Stargirl,” a new show coming out in 2020 that was filmed throughout parts of Georgia.

The newly-released trailer shows the lead character Courtney Whitmore and her family moving to a town with her family and discovering her very own supernatural powers via a special staff.

The special staff discovered in her parent’s attic is supposed to be used by Starman, played by actor Joel McHale.

Earlier this year, The A-Scene spotted the the DC Universe series “Stargirl" filming throughout the areas of Jackson. Back in August, Douglas County High School got the star treatment.

Producers issued a notice to residents back then, alerting them that scenes will be filmed starting Monday, Aug. 19.

“We will be working with the City of Douglassville Police Department to ensure a safe film day and to assist with any unforeseen circumstances and potential questions. We have prepared to have low impact on school operations including students, faculty, and any vehicular travel. We apologize for any inconvenience this work activity might cause. Thank you for your continued support, patience, and hospitality," the statement read.

“Stargirl” follows the journey of Courtney Whitmore, a high school student who joins the Justice Society of America. Brec Bassinger plays Whitmore.

The show was created by Geoff Johns.

Johns, a long-time DC alum, has been a writer for multiple episodes of "Smallville", "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Titans." He was co-writer of the motion picture version of "Aquaman" and is co-writer of the upcoming "Wonder Woman 1984." He's co-creator and executive producer of "Stargirl."

Bassinger is known for multiple appearances on TV's "The Goldbergs", "The School of Rock" and "All Night," plus movie appearances in "Status Update" and "47 Meters Down: Uncaged."
