The show will be run by the producers of Powerless, in association with Warner Bros. Animation. This will be the third series given the go ahead for the platform, including the live-action Titans and a revival of the animated Young Justice. Deadline also says that the show will focus on a Harley Quinn that has finally broken it off with the Joker and is trying to make it as her own crime boss in Gotham City. Better yet, Deadline reports that Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn in the ill-fated Suicide Squad film, is expected to be asked to voice the title character in this animated version, too.
