Haven’t seen a lot of information regarding NBC’s The Cape series in a while, so it is rather surprising to see a new trailer for the show.

“The Cape” is a one-hour drama series starring David Lyons (“ER”) as Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, “Life on Mars”) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, “Flash Forward”). Fueled by a desire to reunite with his family and to battle the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City, Faraday becomes “The Cape” his son’s favorite comic book superhero — and takes the law into his own hands. Rounding out the cast are James Frain (“The Tudors”) as billionaire Peter Fleming — The Cape’s nemesis — who moonlights as the twisted killer: Chess; Keith David (“Death at a Funeral”) as Max Malini, the ringleader of a circus gang of bank robbers who mentors Vince Faraday and trains him to be The Cape, Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) as Orwell, an investigative blogger who wages war on crime and corruption in Palm City; and Dorian Missick (“Six Degrees”) as Marty Voyt, a former police detective and friend to Faraday. “The Cape” is a Universal Media Studios and BermanBraun production from executive producer/creator Thomas Wheeler (“Empire”), executive producer/director Simon West (“Con Air”), the executive producing team of Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun (NBC’s “Mercy), and executive producer Gene Stein (“Accidentally on Purpose”).

    It’s no M.A.N.T.I.S… but it looks like it’ll last just as long as that show did. I could have sworn the show was supposed to have been out this fall/winter, so I guess not.

    Actually looks interesting, especially him learning his skills from carnies. The Shadow combined with the Spirit.

    This looks corny as hell. And is he British or Austrailian? I have no interest in it.

      Seconded. It looks pretty bad to me too. I’m not interested. I’ll probably catch an episode or something here or there when it’s on and hopefully it’ll be so awesome that I instantly have to go back and watch all the missed episodes.
