NBC set to roll out more caped crusader television?

by

NBC is already at work on pilots for the upcoming year, and one that just might make the cut is The Cape.  Instead of going the Heroes route and taking a look at the super powered beings, The Cape looks at an everyday Joe, who dons a mask to fight crime.

It centers on a former cop framed for a crime he didn’t commit who becomes the Cape, a masked hero, to clear his name and reunite with his son. Set in Jefferson City — a Los Angeles-type city where corrupt private industries are taking over everything.

The Cape is currently in active development.  What say you The Legion of Major Spoilers, will a show like this fly, or sink?  Shout out in the comment section below, and maybe, just maybe NBC Uni will be take your comments to heart.
