Hmmm…. it feels like the role probably should’ve gone to Katee Sackhoff but we’ll reserve judgement on this until there’s a pilot or something to actually judge.
Still, this is exciting because it means, holy crap!, they are going to make a Powers tv show.
Lucy Punch has been tapped as the female lead in the FX drama pilot Powers.Based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, the project, written by Charles H. Eglee and to be directed by Michael Dinner, is a police procedural set in a world where superpowers are relatively common. It centers on two detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim (Punch), in a Homicide department that deals with cases involving “powers” (people with superpowers).
