Announced at E3 2014 during Sony’s press conference, PlayStation Network’s Powers TV series will be making its debut later this year as one of the first original series to be debuting on PSN, and luckily the first two episodes of the upcoming series have found their director.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, it was announced that director David Slade will be leading both the pilot and second episode of the Powers TV series, after previously having worked on TV programs like Breaking BadAwakeHannibal, and directing feature films like 30 Days of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. In addition to directing, Slade will also act as executive producer on the first episodes as well.

Powers will be an original television series adapted from the series of graphic novels by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, and focuses on a pair of Chicago homicide detectives that regularly investigate crimes and cases revolving around citizens with superhuman and unnatural abilities, known to the world as “powers.”

The Powers TV series is currently scheduled to debut in December 2014; the pilot will be available to all PSN users for free, while the entire series will be available for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers.
