LOS ANGELES--Sony's PlayStation Network has followed online media giants Netflix and Amazon in commissioning its first original drama series, a spokesman said Thursday.
“Powers,” based on a comic book of the same name, combines the genres of superhero fantasy, crime noir and police procedural, and is produced by Sony Pictures, he said.
Sony, aiming to compete with its main video games console rival Microsoft's Xbox Live in offering TV-style programming, has ordered 10 episodes of the show, according to CNN. The PlayStation Network spokesman, Dan Race, gave no further details.
