Seemingly Dormant Krypton TV Series To Get Pilot Order From Syfy Posted April 21, 2016 by Erik Amaya
Krypton, the proposed television series based on Superman’s home planet, will receive a pilot order from Syfy, according to The Wrap.
The story will follow Superman’s grandfather and his attempts to redeem the House of El after the family is ostracized within Kryptonian society.
The project was first announced in 2014 with Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer involved as an executive producer. Seemingly dormant for the last year, the pilot comes from writer Ian Goldberg — based on a story by Goldberg and Goyer — and director Colm McCarthy. Damian Kindle will be the executive producer and showrrunner of the series should it go to air.
It joins the NBC comedy Powerless as another potential series based on DC Comics character hoping to make it to air in the near-future.
