HBO Max and Cartoon Network have officially given a two-season order to Warner Bros. Animation’s newest DC animated comedy series titled My Adventures with Superman, centering around Clark, Lois, and Jimmy Olsen as they become an investigative reporting team at the Daily Planet. This serialized coming-of-age story will feature the voices of Alice Lee (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) and The Boys star Jack Quaid who have been tapped for the leading voice roles of Superman/ Clark Kent and Lois Lane.
“Superman has remained one of the most iconic and beloved Super Heroes in the world,” Warner Bros.’ Head of Kids & Family Programming, Amy Friedman said. “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.”
“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,” said 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 described as an action-packed, comedic, and romantic adventure of Superman and Lois. The all-new kids and family animated series will 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.
My Adventures with Superman is executive produced by Sam Register, Jake Wyatt, and Brendan Clogher, with Josie Campbell set as a producer.
