Yara is the daughter of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God, and she'll discover that she is none other than Wonder Girl. With her newfound power she must fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world. Rodriguez, who is the daughter of Cuban immigrants, is executive producing with Berlanti Prods.'
