Our actor Ruby Rose makes the TV story in "The Batwoman" by The CW

Ruby Rose made the history of television on Sunday with the premiere of The CW's highly anticipated "Batwoman" series. The lesbian and genre actor was at the center of the role of the first LGBTQ superhero to conduct a network television program.

The pilot sees Rose as Batwoman / Kate Kane, a lesbian determined to save the city of Gotham, who is in a state of crisis following the disappearance of Batman / Bruce Wayne, who appears to be Kate's cousin.

Kate, who was sent away by her father (Dougray Scott) after the death of her mother and sister, returns to town ready to wear her cousin's bat suit – after some small tailoring adjustments – and save her ex-girlfriend kidnapped, Sophie, and the other residents of the city of the band of wonders wearing a mask.

The tension between Kate and Sophie (Meagan Tandy), who is now married to a man, is obvious. The couple met at a military academy and, after being caught kissing by an administrator, was asked to sign the documents that denounce "homosexual conduct" to remain registered. Sophie signed, but Kate decided to leave.

"You lied," Kate told Sophie in a flashback of their breakup.

"I told them what they wanted to hear," Sophie replied. "I don't have the luxury of being offended."

While talking to a small group of reporters at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour of 2019 in August, "Batwoman" executive producer Caroline Dries said Weekly show while while the series explores the complicated relationship of Kate and Sophie, Kate will have many romantic relationships throughout the series.

"We didn't want to sterilize Kate," explained Dries. "It's in this complicated relationship with Sophie because it's a past intellectual relationship, but for me what makes her part of her character is that she has girls. She goes on appointments."
