Looks like the show is going to go a route other than what’s doin in the Powers comics.
“For me it was about creating some interesting characters in a law enforcement context, and it just so happens that the bad guys they’re fighting have abilities that regular people don’t have. I just look at our bad guys as metaphors for real-life characters.”
At the Television Critics Association press tour over the weekend, Landgraf told journalists:
“The superhero genre is ripe for reinvention. Everything television has ever done in that genre is the equivalent of an 8 or a 9 o’clock show -– light, breezy, special effects-oriented. I’m not saying that Powers isn’t fun, but it aspires to be a serious drama, and it’s fascinating to me to try to reshape and reinvent familiar genres.”
