None of the current DC-based television series are connected with DC's movies, but that will change with Syfy's Krypton. Writer/producer David Goyer has revealed that the series, which was announced in 2014, will be a prequel to Man of Steel, which he also wrote. 

"It takes place 200 years before Man of Steel," Goyer said at a press junket for Da Vinci’s Demons (via Comicbook). "We're treating Krypton like it's a historical piece. We look to previous cultures on Earth to model what that would be like."

Goyer went on to clarify that the plan for the show is to explore the deeper culture of Krypton as seen in the first act of Man of Steel

"We scratched the surface in the film and, for me, that was the allure," he said. "I was always fascinated, as a kid, with the books about Krypton and they’ve only shaded in a tiny bit, so we’ll learn about the politics of the world. We’ll learn about the culture, the art, all the different guilds."

Goyer also namechecked the Kryptonian capital of Kryptopolis, and mentioned several other locations including the moons of Krypton.

Syfy has yet to officially greenlight the Krypton series for casting and shooting a pilot.
