“Metropolis” Ordered For DC Streaming Service

The team behind “Gotham” on FOX are now readying a similar city-centric prequel approach with the new series “Metropolis”.

Set in the wondrous and awe-inspiring City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark secrets.

Production on the Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment series will begin later this year with the thirteen-episode first season to debut in 2019 on the new DC digital service due to launch later this year.

John Stephens and Danny Cannon are executive producing and Cannon will direct the first episode, from a teleplay by Stephens, with story by the pair.
