FX cops-and-capes show gets a pilot—and maybe Katee Sackhoff

When the news broke that Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's long-running comic Powers might get a shot at TV, readers and comics geeks were thrilled. Now Powers is one step closer to being a reality, and one step closer to landing one heck of a leading lady.

When Walking Dead executive producer Charles Eglee left the zombie hit to join the nascent staff of Powers, it was greeted with both sadness and joy: sadness that one of the captains of the Dead ship was leaving, but joy at the fact that Powers—which follows two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who have to patrol a world where superheroes and supervillains exist—was gaining steam.


Now Powers has gotten the green light to shoot a pilot episode. And what's more, Katee Sackhoff revealed via Twitter that she's already hungry for the Pilgrim role:


The Powers pilot is casting now and preparing to shoot this spring.
