It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s Clark Kent trading one secret identity for another.

Smallville‘s Tom Welling is set to both star in and produce CBS drama project Section 13, EW has confirmed. The in-development Warner Bros. Television series, written by Bones’ Carla Kettner, focuses on a CIA black ops officer-turned-private contractor (Welling) who, in the wake of a personal tragedy, joins a covert organization devoted to carrying out the most difficult high-stakes assignments. 

Welling and Kettner will serve as executive producers on the series. Welling, who can be seen next in 2016’s The Choice, co-executive produced and executive produced the final two seasons of Smallville, and, through his production company Tom Welling Productions, executive produced CW drama Hellcats. Kettner spent five seasons with Bones as a writer and later executive producer; she has most recently served as co-executive producer on CBS’s Zoo.

Kettner and Welling are represented by WME Entertainment.
