PlayStation Network's flagship series - Powers - debuts on 10 March on PSN. This unique new series is an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis's hit comic book, Powers, about two homicide detectives who investigate cases of people with extraordinary abilities. Powers stars Sharlto Copley, Susan Heyward, Eddie Izzard, Olesya Rulin and Noah Taylor.
Check out the official description of the new, edgy series:
Powers, an edgy dramatic series, follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Heyward), who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, referred to as "Powers".
Set amidst today's paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren't actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals?
Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the people in charge of protecting regular humans like us and keeping the peace over commercialised, god-like men and women who glide through the sky imposing their power over the mortals who both worship and fear them.
It does seem quite interesting...maybe like a Chronicle-meets-Entourage and police procedural mashup.
Here's the official synopsis of the pilot episode. In a world where having powers can make you a celebrity, the death of a well-known superhero is headline news. Now Detective Christian Walker and his new partner Deena Pilgrim are on a mission to discover the truth, leading them to Calista (Olesya Rulin), a young woman with a mysterious past and suspicious motives.
