This new superhero show, starring Melissa Benoist, is scheduled to air the pilot episode on October 26, 2015. The show will revolve around Superman's long-lost Kryptonian cousin, Kara Zor-El, played by Benoist, of course. Unknown yet is how or if, Superman will appear, or if he will be played by the current movie Superman, Henry Cavill, though the cast list on IMDB does show a Kal-El played by Kevin Caliber.
From what we see in this trailer, our young super-heroine has at least one friend who is aware of her secret identity and who helps her with her costuming choices. That scene seems like a humorous homage to the many different costume varients Supergirl has worn in her long career in comics, movies, and animated shows.

The cast list also includes Calista Flockhart as the catty Cat Grant, and, in a super-easter egg surprise, we see Dean Cain, former TV Superman as the the adopted human father of Supergirl, Fred Danvers. Well played, CBS!
Another point of interest is whether or not the new Supergirl show might crossover with the very popular Arrow and Flash TV shows. All of the title characters are owned by DC Comics and even though CBS and CW are different brands, it is hoped by many fans that a DC character crossover does occur. Over the past few years, many fans and critics have been critical of DC's attempts to create a cinematic universe ala Marvel's successful foray into movies. However, DC does have a good recent track record with hitting the bullseye on TV, with Flash and Arrow. (See what we did there...!)
Regardless of any future crossovers, this six-minute long trailer of our new Supergirl has us quite excited for the future. Stay tuned!
