FX is planning on bringing their comic book adaption series Powers back to life. The studio originally shot the pilot, but elected not to move forward. FX president John Landgraf later asked creator Charles H. Eglee for a re-write, with plans to re-shoot the pilot with an all new cast.
FX Gives Powers Another Chance
Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's comics follow two police officers who investigate crimes committed by people with superhuman abilities. The original pilot starred Jason Patric as Detective Christian Walker and Lucy Punch as Detective Deena Pilgrim.
The studio also has spy drama The Americans on the table for a possible series. The show would follow a married couple who are spys for the KGB. The pilot stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell.
There is no immediate production start planned for this resurrected pilot.
