Powers Comes to Playstation Courtesy of Sony Pictures TV

powersDuring 2013′s E3, Sony promised original programming for it’s newest gaming platform, the Playstation 4. Details on exactly what that was remained a bit vague. We now have an idea as they have announced the first show, Powers, based on the comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

The series is being produced by PlayStation which is part of Sony Pictures TV. There had been some movement on the series in the past, including a pilot for FX. The new series will be penned by Charlie Huston. Bendis, Oeming and Michael Dinner will executive produce with Huston and Remi Aubuchon, along with Circle of Confusion’s David Engel, David Alpert and Lawrence Mattis. Huston and Aubuchon will serve as showrunners.

The series combines noir, police procedural and superheroes and follows a detective who protects humans and investigates cases involving folks with superpowers.

There’s no date set yet for the series to start but it is reported the show will be 10 episodes.

Original programming is becoming a big deal on gaming platforms. During their pitch for the Xbox One, Microsoft mentioned an original series based on the Halo video game.

C2E2 2013: Dark Horse Deluxe Announces Powers Product Line

Dark Horse Deluxe, an imprint of Dark Horse Comics, has licensed rights to create figures based on Powers, the long-running creator-owned series of comics and graphic novels by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming.

Projects include a limited-edition statue of Retro Girl, a central figure in the first Powers story arc, and a boxed set of vinyl figures of the series’ ongoing principal characters.

Combining the genres of superhero fantasy, crime noir, and police procedural, Powers follows the lives and cases of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, who are referred to as “powers.”

The Retro Girl statue will be sculpted by Tony Cipriano, who has created many popular superhero-themed collectible statues for a variety of companies. Michael Avon Oeming, working in concert with Bendis and Dark Horse, created special art for the statue, which will be used as control art during sculpting. The statue will capture the stylized nature of the graphic art, while anchoring the figure in realism.

Dark Horse also plans a boxed set of four-to-five-inch vinyl figures, which will include protagonists Walker and Pilgrim as centerpieces of the ensemble.

Both projects are slated for release in the fourth quarter of 2013. The prototypes will be shown to the trade and the public for the first time as part of the product display in the Dark Horse booth at San Diego Comic-Con in July.

Retail prices and edition sizes are to be determined.
