TELEVISION: Powers series finds its Calista
FX is currently working on a pilot for Powers, the Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming series focusing on Christian Walker and his investigations on crimes involving superheroes. The network has announced (and many sources have picked up on) that Bailee Madison will play the young Calista, “an otherworldly young girl raised by her stepdad Eagle, a man with powers. When Eagle’s wife is murdered and he goes on the lam, Calista comes to stay with Walker and develops a bond with him.”
I really like that FX is getting involved with this project. If they do Powers like they did The Shield and Rescue Me, I think the show will be a huge hit for the network.
