On the heels of the success this fall of Fox’s Batman prequel “Gotham,” a prequel series is coming to TV that focuses on another superhero, Superman.
EW.com’s Inside TV reports that Syfy says “Man of Steel” writer David S. Goyer has a development deal for a series called “Krypton.”
EW has the pitch: “Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series follows The Man of Steel’s grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.”
Goyer and Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time”) will be the executive producers, EW reports.
