"Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" is an American television series based on the DC Comics character 'Superman' created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. It stars Dean Cain as 'Clark Kent/Superman' and Teri Hatcher as 'Lois Lane.' The series aired on ABC from September 12, 1993 to June 14, 1997. Developed for television by Deborah Joy LeVine, the series loosely followed the modern origin of 'Superman,' established by writer John Byrne, where 'Clark Kent' is the true personality and 'Superman' a disguise. The series focuses on the relationship and romance between 'Lois' and 'Clark' as much as the adventures of 'Clark's' alter-ego, 'Superman.'
