Smallville is an American science fiction television series created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, which follows the adventures of a young Clark Kent's life in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas, during the years before he becomes Superman.
Growing up is tough for any teenager. But it's even tougher when you have mysterious super powers you don't understand and must not reveal to others - powers that keep you from fitting in with everday high school and dating.
More so when you're destined to be the greatest superhero of all time...
Years ago, a freak meteor shower hit the small town of Smallville. A little boy is discovered and is raised by a loving, but childless couple. The little boy, named Clark, soon starts revealing extraordinary powers.
In his teen years, Clark Kent is very aware of his powers, but this powerful secret needs to be guarded as the truth about his origins begin to unravel. The series is riddled with dangerous villains and foes that Clarke must face.
Added to the pressure is the fact that he cannot let those closest to him (apart from his parents) know the truth about himself.
Smallville was developed for television by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, based on the DC Comics characters. Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer serve as executive producers, along with James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola.
The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster.
