Powers, the first PlayStation Original Series, is an adaptation of a graphic novel by the same name. Sharlto Copley, best known for his roles in District 9 and Elysium, plays an detective who once had superpowers and now specializes in superhuman criminal investigations.
The show is clearly aiming for a gritty, mature tone. The trailer drops several F-bombs, has a couple crazy people, and things get smashed in an angry fashion. It remains to be seen if the series can deliver on its promising concept, but if anyone can be counted on to give an interesting performance it is Copley.
There is no announced release date quite yet for the series. However, it is worth noting that the Powers will be free for PlayStation Plus members.
