About This Show

An enlightening and exhilarating tale of a young woman who retreats behind a superhero mask to fight the ultimate super-villain – the real world. Based on her original play, Anna Capunay produced a TV pilot about her superhero shut-in. Cowl Girl wears a Batman cowl, masking herself from the outside world. Her secret identity is known only by her friends, Tabby and Jason, and the intriguing nephew of her arch-enemy, Alex. They band together to help release her from her shut-in life of Pee-Wee Herman, the music of the artist formerly known as Prince, a legion of 80s cartoons, and her Star Trek memorabilia. Will this valiant triumvirate be able to crack her impenetrable shell, or will Cowl Girl be condemned to a retro life of loneliness?
