Powers

Postby Dan » February 19th, 2015, 1:00 am

Sony will be airing their first Playstation exclusive TV series in a few weeks with the anticipated adaptation of the hit comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming (first published by Image Comics, now under Marvel's Icon imprint).

Warning: Trailer includes vulgar language and some mature content.



Powers follows Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who comprise the Powers Division that investigate super hero related crime in a city that is seeing more and more super powered individuals appearing constantly. At the same time, Walker continues to have difficulty adjusting to an seemingly ordinary life after his powers had been taken away from him.

The series was originally going to be an FX series years ago and a pilot was even shot. After some time of inactivity, Sony picked up the series to stream exclusively on Playstation consoles. Serving as executive producer as well as director of the first two episodes is David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hannibal TV series).

The series stars Sharlto Copley (District 9, Maleficent) as Detective Walker, Susan Heyward (The Following, Mother of George) as Detective Pilgrim, Michelle Forbes (True Blood, The Killing) as Retro Girl, and Eddie Izzard (The Riches, Cars 2) as Wolfe.
