Anna-Belen Dunlop, Acting Acquisitions and Channel Manager at Spike comments: “I’m delighted to welcome edgy crime drama, Powers to the Spike schedule. With great cast and impressive effects, it’s an exciting twist on the superhero genre. I’m sure our audience will enjoy it as much as From Dusk Till Dawn, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.”
Powers follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker played by Sharlto Copley (District 9, Maleficent) and Deena Pilgrim played by Susan Heyward (666 Park Avenue, 30 Rock). The ensemble cast includes Emmy® Award winning British actor and comedian Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie, Oceans Thirteen, Oceans Twelve, Hannibal) who plays villain Wolfe, Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones, Peaky Blinders), Michelle Forbes (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, True Blood, The Returned), Olesya Rulin (Halloween High, High School Musical), Max Fowler (Wolf Hall, The Killing), Adam Godley (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Homeland), and Logan Browning (Bratz, Meet The Browns).
