Kevin Falls and Brian Michael Bendis to Adapt Powers for FX
Premium Hollywood recently caught up with FX President and General Manager John Landgraf for an update on the upcoming television series Powers. Brian Michael Bendis, who created the original comic upon which the series will be based, is currently working with Journeyman creator Kevin Falls to hammer out the pilot script.
Powers revolves around Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, two homicide detectives devoted to working "super power" cases in a world where comic book heroes are relatively common but not considered mundane. Walker was once a costumed superhero himself before he lost his powers. Michael Dinner is reportedly set to direct the debut episode.
Though no one has been cast at this time, Powers is gearing up for a late fall release.
