POWERS (FX)
DEVELOPMENT HISTORY:
2/6/09 - 3/19/14
STATUS:
previously in development (2012-2013 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE:
ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION:
(from FX's press release, June 2011) Film and stage star Jason Patric has signed on to star as "Christian Walker" in the FX drama series pilot Powers, based on the award-winning comic and graphic novel series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming. The pilot, written by Charles H. Eglee (The Shield, Dexter, The Walking Dead) and to be directed by Michael Dinner (Sons of Anarchy, Justified), begins production in July in Chicago. Eglee and Dinner serve as Executive Producers along with Bendis, Oeming and David Engel. Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions will co-produce. Powers is a high concept crime procedural where the detectives police the brutal and sensational crimes surrounding super power beings, while illuminating the weaknesses and strengths of humanity in the process. Powers follows the life of "Christian Walker" (Patric), a homicide detective devoted solely to cases that involve "powers" (people with superpowers). The pilot also stars Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher) as "Deena Pilgrim," Walker's partner; Charles S. Dutton (Roc) as Walker's indefatigable boss, "Captain Cross"; and Bailee Madison (Just Go With It) as "Calista," an acerbic 10-year-old girl drawn into Walker's life.
