Sony's PlayStation console is throwing its hat into the original programming ring, starting with an adaptation of the “Powers” comic-book series.

Sony Pictures Television is producing a drama based on the comics by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming for the gaming console.

The adaptation revolves around Detective Christian Walker, who's in charge of protecting humans like us and investigating cases involving the God-like men and women, referred to as “powers,” who glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire and who clash above cities in epic battle, oblivious to the mortals below.
