Metropolis will be released on the upcoming DC Comics-branded digital platform, already home to Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders and Warner Bros. Animation’s Harley Quinn. The series, which has already received a direct-to-series order for a 13-episode first season, is set to be helmed by Gotham executive producers John Stephens and Danny Cannon.
Metropolis is set in DC’s glimmering City of Tomorrow, before the arrival of Superman. The live-action drama will follow Lois Lane and, surprisingly, Lex Luthor as they investigate “fringe science,” and expose Metropolis’ bizarre secrets.
