Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Rats! Powers may be in trouble.
"We didn't pick the pilot of Powers up; we went back and Chick Eglee, who had written it, did a fairly substantial rewrite that would require pretty extensive reshoots of the pilot," Landgraf said. "Right now we're in the process of deciding whether to pull the trigger on the reshoot."
If they do pull it off, it sounds like it could be worth the effort:

"When you think about a 10 o'clock drama -- a Sopranos-esque drama or any serious drama -- there's never been a feature film or TV series that's taken the super hero genre into that type of tonality, it's never been done and it's just really a struggle," he added, citing HBO's success with turning fantasy drama Game of Thrones into the 10 p.m. hour. "It can be done, it's just proving really difficult."
