Combining the genres of superhero fantasy, crime noir and police procedural, Powers, whose order is said to be around 10 episodes, is set in a world full of people with superhuman abilities and where all of those powers are just another catalyst for mayhem and murder. The series follows Detective Christian Walker, who is in charge of protecting humans like us and investigating cases involving the God-like men and women, referred to as “powers,” who glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire and who clash above cities in epic battle, oblivious to the mortals below. No start date is set yet for the series, which is expected to be of premium cable quality. SPT will sell internationally.
The studio already has experience producing for digital platforms — it has a 13-episode order from Netflix for a drama series from the Damages creators currently called Untitled KZK Project. Michael Beasley also currently has recurring role in the Netflix original television series, Untitled KZK Project as ‘Little Jake.’ Until a name is finalized, the television series is being called the Untitled KZK Project for creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler. That trio was behind the FX Network's legal drama Damages starring Glenn Close. The 13-episode drama commissioned by Netflix stars Kyle Chandler, an Emmy-winner for Friday Night Lights, and Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek.
