ITS A BIRD; ITS A PLANE; ITS A 13-EPISODE ORDER!9/24/2000 08:00:00 PM Eastern
The WB has committed to a new take on the Superman story. The network has ordered a young-skewing, coming-of-age drama on the early life of Clark Kent/Superman. The series is from co-owned Warner Bros., which has the rights to the character, and will be produced by Tollin/Robbins (producers of Arli$$ on co-owned HBO). It's the largest order for a first-time drama in the network's history.
