The Chicago Sun-Times (via CBM) has your first look at former “Speed 2” guy Jason Patric as Christian Walker in the FX Channel’s new superhero TV show “Powers”, due out June 2012. If the network likes what they see from the pilot that was just shot, you can expect a series greenlight. If not? Well, remember what happened to David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman”?
The show recently shot its pilot episode in Chicago, and stars Patric and Lucy Punch (“Bad Teacher”) as his partner, Deena Pilgrim, cops in a world where superpowers are a common thing. It’s Pilgrim and Walker’s job to investigate homicides involving these superpowered freaks. Walker, by the way, used to have powers himself.
The show co-stars Charles S. Dutton, Carly Foulkes (the T-Mobile girl), and Bailee Madison (“Don’t be Afraid of the Dark”), along with Vinnie Jones and “Supernatural” alum Alona Tal.
