To quote: As PlayStation fans, you've probably heard a few whispers about "Powers" - the original live-action series set to premiere exclusively on PSN in the United States this December. Today, the "Powers" team announced some exciting news as we prepare to begin shooting.
We have our first director! David Slade has signed on to direct the first two episodes of "Powers." David has most recently directed episodes of NBC's "Hannibal" and AMC's "Breaking Bad," plus films like 30 Days of Night, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Hard Candy.
