Young Superman to Fly

Look, up in the air! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's HIM again! Variety reports that the WB TV network has ordered 13 episodes of a new hour-long contemporary adventure-drama about Clark Kent -- better known as Superman -- at the age of 15, set to premiere during the 2001-02 season. The "Teenage Clark Kent Project," as it is now called, will reportedly follow the adolescent Clark as he comes to grips with his emerging superpowers, be action-packed (more so than ABC's late "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman") and contain humor. Sounds like a riot.
