TORONTO — Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort’s idea for a series of children’s books is going to be made into a TV series instead.

The former Smallville star is executive-producing Super Duper Deelia, a half-hour live-action series about a 10-year-old girl who discovers that she has superpowers.

She learns to deal with these powers with the help of her grandmother and a talking dog.

Super Duper Deelia will be aimed at girls aged six to 12 years old.

“Proud to be bringing this concept into reality,” Vandervoort, 29, tweeted on Wednesday from France, where she is selling the show to broadcasters.

In March, the Toronto native told a group of hometown fans she hoped to get Super Duper Deelia published.

“I went to school for literature and psychology,” she said during a panel discussion at Toronto ComicCON. “I was a tomboy growing up, didn’t like the princesses, the ponies or the pink. There weren’t really any books to support that.”
