Ahead of its panel at SDCC this weekend, SYFY have unveiled the first teaser trailer for their upcoming Krypton series. Based on DC characters, the series serves as a Superman prequel and is set 2 generations before his home planet was destroyed in Man of Steel.
Produced by David S.

The following is the official series synopsis from SYFY:
