The FX Network is going to give their adaptation of the comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming another shot.
The saga of the television adaptation of Powers, the superhero crime drama by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, seems to have gone on for about as long as the comic itself. The series, which actually started as a film option about a decade ago, shot a pilot last year with main characters Deena Pilgrim and Christian Walker played by Lucy Punch and Jason Patric respectively, but the FX network passed on it. Now, Variety is reporting that that won't be the end of Powers at FX. According to the trade paper, FX head John Landgraf still wants to see a new pilot with a new cast, so that will be the next step for producer Charles "Chick" Eglee, a veteran of the network who worked on The Shield.
So it seems the news on the Powers TV show is still the same as it ever was: it's not dead yet. Here's hoping Sony Television and the FX Network can put something pretty special together after all this work.
