Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

Season #1
Synopsis: Another incarnation of the Superman legend, this series puts a 1990s spin on the standard story. This time, the focus is on the romantic triangle forming between Superman, Clark Kent and Lois (who obviously doesn't know that they are in fact one and the same). True to old Superman form, the evil Lex Luthor pops up every once in a while to wreak havoc on The Daily Planet and the city of Metropolis.

8 EXT. DAILY PLANET - DAY - TO ESTABLISH 8

The famous Globe sits atop the fifty story building,

scraping the bright blue sky.

8A EXT. STREET IN FRONT OF DAILY PLANET - EARLY MORNING 8A*

A few early bird newspaper Employees are arriving. We

FOLLOW a slight Young Man with a mustache and beard

wearing baggy jeans, jeans jacket, cap pulled low over his

eyes, tool belt around his waist as he enters the Daily

Planet building.

8B INT. DAILY PLANET LOBBY - CONTINUOUS 8B*

The Young Man passes a newspaper stand on the way toward

the elevators. As an elevator arrives and the Young Man

steps inside we

8C INT. DAILY PLANET NEWSROOM - ELEVATOR STAND - CONTINUOUS 8C*

The Young Man exits the elevators and proceeds toward the *

"Pit" -- the area of desks reserved for reporters. He *

sits down at his desk with a tired sigh, takes off his *

shoes, rubs his feet. *

THE YOUNG MAN *

now takes off his jacket. He wears a T-shirt underneath. *

He puts both his hands on his chest, feeling a terrible *

tightness, looks around for then grabs a scissors off the *

desk, then lifts up his T-shirt just enough to reveal the *

bottom of a large Ace Bandage and starts to cut. The *

Young Man expertly maneuvers under the T-shirt, cutting *

away, finally unravelling the bandage and pulling it *

through the sleeve of the T-shirt. The Young Man takes a *

deep breath, sitting back in his chair... *

FROM THE BACK *

The Young Man now removes his cap, shakes his long curly *

hair loose, letting it fall to his shoulders. *

JIMMY (O.S.) *

You're in early. *

JIMMY OLSEN, cub reporter, approaches. He is twenty-one, *

looks years younger. In white T-shirt and jeans, Jimmy's

boyish good looks make him a potential heartbreaker.

Jimmy moves to the front of the desk and now stares at a *

rather beautiful young woman, still sporting the *

mustache and beard. *

JIMMY (CONT'D)

(taking a thoughtful

pose) *

I like the beard. But the *

mustache isn't working for me. *

The woman remembers, touches her face. *

JIMMY (CONT'D)

Want me to do it? *

The woman nods and Jimmy sits on the edge of her desk, *

taking the corner of the mustache and then ripping it off. *

The woman squeals, but when she picks her head up we now *

see the real face of LOIS LANE, intrepid reporter for the *

Daily Planet. Lois is a twenty-six year old spitfire with

a "Just Do It" body. Momentarily forgetting her pain, *

Lois pulls out a tiny video recorder from her jacket, sets *

it on her desk and Dresses Play. *

LOIS:

(proudly) *

I nailed 'em cold. *

We MOVE IN to the tiny picture on the video screen and *

then *

9 INT. DAILY PLANET NEWSROOM - TWO HOURS LATER 9*

We are still watching the video playback from Lois' *

adventures from the previous night -- Lois, in her young *

man get-up, helps make the arrest of a band of car thieves *

at the Metropolis pier. When we PULL BACK we see a *

beehive of activity in the open nerve center on the top

floor. Reporters are at their desks typing, sipping

coffee, speaking on phones. Assistants and staff race to

pick up copy, deliver messages, etc. A large screen TV is

tuned to LTC (LexTeleCommunications News). We continue to

PAN until we stop at
