First Look at Sharlto Copley in POWERS — Cop Drama in a Superhero World

Sony has released the first image from Powers, the PlayStation Network's first original show. It's based on the Powers comic book series by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming.

Executive producer Charlie Huston talks about what the show Powers is:

"It's such a clever concept to try and imagine a real world where you actually have to deal with powers and how they impact society, and to do that through the lens of a cop drama."

The show centers on two cops and is set in a world were superpowers are real. Sharlto Copley plays Christian Walker, who is an expert a dealing with superpowered people. Susan Heyward plays Deena Pilgrim, who is young and inexperienced but has instinctive detective skills. There is also one last twist — one of them used to be a superhero.

The 10 episode run does not yet have an air date. If you'd like to read more about how the show is being adapted, check out the full interview on USA Today.
