This action-adventure series was produced by the team that brought the Superman legend to the big screen in 1978 and focused on a little-known chapter in the life of the Man of Steel: his college years.

Clark Kent – played by John Haymes Newton initially (pictured above) and replaced by Gerard Christopher (pictured below) in 1989 when Newton was fired following his arrest for DUI thanks to the morals clause in his contract – is a bespectacled journalism student at Shuster University where his best friends are Lana Lang (Stacy Haiduk) and TJ White (James Calvert), aspiring photographer son of Daily Planet editor Perry White.

The University of Central Florida located in Oviedo, Florida was used for Shuster College.
