PS Network getting original crime drama


Microsoft and Xbox won’t be the only producers of original television content aimed at console owners this generation. Variety reports that Sony Pictures Television will be producing an original series called “Powers,” which will air via the PlayStation Network.

Powers will be an adaptation of a long-running comic of the same name, written by Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy) and illustrated by Michael Avon Oeming (Judge Dredd, Catwoman). The comic mixes crime drama and superhero fantasy, sort of like Law & Order, if Jack McCoy was prosecuting Magneto.

Bendis and Oeming will also serve as producers for the show, which currently has 10 episodes in the works. No release date was given for Powers.
