Kevin Falls to Collaborate with Brian Michael Bendis on the Powers TV Pilot


The website Premium Hollywood has talked with John Landgraf, the FX network’s President and General Manager, to find out the latest on the TV Network’s attempt to bring Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s Powers comic book series to television screens.

They were able to confirm that the pilot is still being developed, and that Brian Michael Bendis was now collaborating on producing a script with Kevin Falls.

Kevin Falls is best know as the creator and showrunner of the NBC television drama Journeyman, and has also produced and written for shows like Shark, Lyon’s Den, Sport’s Night, and The West Wing.

Powers is a creator-owned comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming. The series’ first volume was published by Image Comics (2000 to 2004). Subsequent volumes (beginning in 2004) have been published by Marvel Comics as a part of the Icon imprint.

Powers is set in a world where superpowers are relatively common but not mundane. The series follows the lives of two detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, police officers in a Homicide department devoted to cases that involve “powers” (people with superpowers). Walker himself used to be a costumed superhero named Diamond, but became a police officer after he lost his abilities. Though stripped of his powers, he still retains his contacts within the superhero community, even becoming engaged to an ex-colleague, who is later killed.
