Based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Powers has been gestating for a long time now, Deadline says. It's even been through several incarnations at Sons of Anarchy network FX.
Powers combines the genres of superhero fantasy, crime noir, and police procedural and is said to span around 10 episodes. The people that make up the world have superhuman abilities and "all of those powers are just another catalyst for mayhem and murder."
More specifically, Powers follows detective Christian Walker, who is charged with protecting humans and investigating cases involving super-human men and women known as "powers."
A launch date for Powers was not announced. Deadline describes the series as "of premium cable quality."
