Created as a comic book in 2000 by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Powers was first being developed as a feature film before heading in the direction of a regular TV show.
Then things changed again and its set to become the first all digital show to be produced by the PlayStation Network. That means when the 10 episode run starts to air in December 2014, it will be available first and exclusively to registered users of PlayStation Plus.
Which is pretty cool, especially when you find out that its about a world where superpowers are real and so many people have them that a special police force has to be set up to help protect the normal people. Sharlto Copley stars as a former Power who now works as a cop hunting other supervillainous sorts.
Here's the trailer, which has some bad language in it.
The coarse language is interesting, as there was really no reason to expect it would have any objectionable material. And obviously it makes me wonder whether there'll be violence and/nudity to go along with a show that clearly isn't interested in being suitable for younger eyes.
We'll just to wait and see.
Powers debuts exclusively on the PSN in December 2014.
