Hot on the heels of the announcement that the Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming comic series Powers, had been greenlit by FX Network for a television pilot, comes delicious casting hopes that Katee Sackhoff (The Haunting in Georgia) may be cast in the lead role of Deena Pilgrim.
Sackhoff tweeted that she had a meeting about Powers last year and was just waiting for the green light to pursue the role.
Powers follows “a pair of homicide detectives who work in a world where superheroes are part of everyday life. Deena is a feisty young detective who’s partnered with Christian Walker, a veteran cop who used to be a “power” himself before losing his abilities.”
It’s funny that since the conclusion of Battlestar Galactica, Sackhoff has played quite a few police officers. Hey, we don’t need any more convincing that Sackhoff can play a feisty police officer! Hopefully, writer/executive producer Charles Eglee (formerly Frank Darabont’s right hand man on AMC’s The Walking Dead) will see the potential in this as well.
