Similar to SyFy's Alphas, the show focuses on a pair of detectives who lead a homicide department that takes on cases involving culprits with supernatural abilities. Lucy Punch will co-star.

Shooting on Powers begins this summer in Chicago. There's a strong likelihood FX will pick it up for the fall.
