Dramas ordered for the fall schedule were the young Superman vehicle “Smallville,” from Warner Bros. and Tollin-Robbins Prods. and Miramax TV’s “Glory Days,” from “Dawson’s Creek” creator Kevin Williamson. The WB also ordered two new reality series: “Elimidate Deluxe,” from Telepictures Prods., and “Lost in the U.S.A.,” in addition to picking up a second season of “Popstars.”
