‘My Adventures With Superman’: HBO Max/Cartoon Network Order New Animated Series
HBO Max and Cartoon Network has given a two-season series order for ‘My Adventures with Superman’, an all-new kids and family animated series following the action-packed, comedic and romantic adventures of Superman and Lois Lane. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) and based on characters from DC, the series catches up with twenty-somethings Clark Kent, the bright and driven Lois Lane, and their best friend Jimmy Olsen as they begin to discover who they are and everything they can accomplish together as an investigative reporting team at the Daily Planet.
“Superman has remained one of the most iconic and beloved Super Heroes in the world,” commented Amy Friedman, Head of Kids & Family Programming, Warner Bros. “This fresh take from the Warner Bros. Animation team delivers a modern, relatable Clark Kent alongside a fearless, whip-smart Lois Lane who are navigating the small tasks of both becoming adults and trying to save the world.”
In this serialized coming-of-age story, we follow Clark as he builds his secret Superman identity and embraces his role as the hero of Metropolis – and perhaps the world. Lois, now growing into a star investigative journalist, takes aspiring photographer Jimmy Olsen under her wing. All the while, Clark and Lois are falling in love, sharing adventures, taking down bad guys, stumbling over secrets, and discovering what it means to be Superman and Lois Lane. Jack Quaid (‘The Boys’) and Alice Lee (‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist’) lead the voice cast as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively.
“It’s been a great partnership working with Cartoon Network and HBO Max to bring more DC Super Heroes to the platform in new and creatively interesting ways” adds Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios. “This is the first animated Superman series in many years and we want to tell our Superman story through the trio of Clark, Lois and Jimmy – whose relationship dynamic will allow for rich, serialized and engaging stories as we explore their lives as individuals and their journey together as friends.”
‘My Adventures with Superman’ is produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register (‘Teen Titans Go!’) serves as executive producer. Jake Wyatt (‘Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus’) and Brendan Clogher (‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’) are on board as co-executive producers and Josie Campbell (‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’) as co-producer.
‘My Adventures With Superman‘ is set to air in the USA on HBO Max and Cartoon Network. It’s still way too early to know where this may land in the UK, but if you want to keep track of this series you can add it via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
