It was revealed back in December that “The Walking Dead” executive producer Charles “Chic” Eglee (also known for “Dexter” and “The Shield”) was in talks to head up the television adaptation of the long-running comic series “Powers.” The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Eglee with produce the Michael Dinner-directed (“Sons of Anarchy” and “Justified” pilots) pilot episode based on his own screenplay adaptation. FX has given the green light for a pilot presentation.
Based on the popular comic by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, “Powers” follows detectives in a homicide department devoted to cases that involve superheroes. The pilot order comes a decade after Sony optioned the rights for a feature film version, which never came to fruition. “Powers” has been in publication for more than a decade, producing a dozen graphic novels and more than 60 issues.
