First Photo: Sony’s “Powers” TV Series

Production is officially underway on the upcoming TV series adaptation of the acclaimed comic “Powers” for Sony Pictures, and today USA Today has posted a first look photo from the series starring Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward as Detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim respectively.

The story follows two detectives assigned to investigate superhero-related major crimes. The series is slated to launch exclusively on the PlayStation Network this December, an advantage says executive producer Charlie Huston because the show will have network production values but without content restrictions:

“My dream was for the show and the books to almost run in parallel universes as they explore the same themes. We’re getting the best of both worlds. We’re getting a network-budgeted show, and we’re getting to dive in as dark and deep as we want to go.”
