The series is set on Superman’s home planet decades before its destruction, following his grandfather’s attempt to redeem his family’s honor after the House of El was shamed and ostracized.
Fans of Stargate will also be glad to know that former SG-1 and Atlantis writer-producer Damian Kindler has joined the project as executive producer and showrunner. Kindler created Syfy’s Sanctuary, and most recently worked on FOX’s Sleepy Hollow.
Goyer and Kindler are rewriting the pilot script, which Goyer originally penned with Ian Goldberg.
Colm McCarthy (who has episodes of Doctor Who and Sherlock under his belt) will direct the pilot.
