"Smallville" is a television series that ran from October 2001 to May 2011. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar wrote and produced the show, basing the storyline on the Superman character in DC Comics. The main character of the series is Clark Kent, who is played by Tom Welling. The events of the show start in a fictional town in Kansas called Smallville.
The first four seasons of the show feature the main characters going to high school, but by the fifth season, it begins to feature their adult lives, such as the main character working at the Daily Planet. Most of the show's scenes were filmed near Vancouver, British Columbia.
Mark Snow wrote most of the music for the first six seasons of the series, using parts of John Williams's music from the "Superman" film series. Louis Febre served as a supporting composer from the beginning of the series and became the primary composer in the seventh season. Christopher Reeve, who once played Superman, appeared twice in the series as a guest star.
"Smallville" became the longest-running North American science-fiction series during its run, surpassing "Stargate SG-1." After the show finished running on television, it continued as a series of comic books until March 2015.
