The announcement came this morning from Bendis himself on the PlayStation Blog, where he revealed the drama will kick off on its premiere date with the first three episodes, followed by the release of one new episode each Tuesday.
The first episode will be available for free to everyone on PlayStation’s “Powers” webpage. However, only PlayStation Plus members will be able to watch the full 10-episode first season for free.
As most comic readers know, “Powers” centers on Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim — they’re played in the live-action series by Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward — homicide detectives assigned to the Powers Division, which investigates cases involving people with superhuman abilities.
PlayStation Network’s first original programming, “Powers” also stars Noah Taylor as criminal mastermind Johnny Royalle, Eddie Izzard as Walker’s dangerous former mentor Wolfe, Michelle Forbes as superpowered superstar Retro Girl, Olesya Rulin as teen Power Calista, and Logan Browning as powerful young star Zora.
The drama is executive produced by Bendis, Oeming, Charlie Huston, Remi Aubuchon, Michael Dinner and David Engel.
Bendis will appear on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Jan. 20 to discuss the adaptation, along with his comics-related work.
