Co-creator of the Powers comic books and executive producer of the show, Brian Michael Bendis has announced today that his series will debut the first 3 episodes on the PlayStation Network starting March 10. The 10-episode series has officially wrapped production, and this news comes along with a poster featuring star Sharlto Copley as Christina Walker. Says Brian Michael Bendis about the upcoming superhero drama:
"It is my honor and privilege to officially tell you that PlayStation will be releasing the first three episodes on March 10th followed by the debut of a new episode every Tuesday. The first episode will be free for everyone at PlayStation.com/Powers and the full season will be available free to members of PlayStation Plus...which you should have already because it's awesome."
Powers is an edgy dramatic series from Sony Pictures Television and inspired by the graphic novel series of the same name. It follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with extraordinary abilities, referred to as "Powers." Set amidst today's paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren't actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the only people brave enough to go up against the overpaid, commercialized, superhumans who glide through the sky imposing their power over the crowds below who both worship and fear them.
