A live-action adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s comic book series “Powers” is on the way as an hour-long PlayStation original drama series. The Wall Street Journal broke the news, reporting that Sony Pictures Television is developing the property.
“Powers,” written by Bendis and drawn by Oeming, follows two detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, as they investigate superhero-related homicides. The series launched in 2004 through Image Comics and is now published by Marvel’s Icon imprint.
A television version of “Powers” was in the works some years back with “Journeyman” creator Kevin Falls drafting a never-released pilot that starred Lucy Punch and Jason Patric as Detectives Pilgrim and Walker.
