Filed in: The Cape

Summer is back!!!

Summer has joined NBC’s superhero-themed drama pilot “The Cape” in a leading role.

In the pilot, directed by Simon West, a former cop (David Lyons) is set up as a criminal and becomes a masked hero, the Cape, to clear his name. Summer Glau will play Orwell, a cute and intrepid investigative blogger who fearlessly goes after corrupt cops and costumed bad guys. And yes, she gets physical and is quite capable of kicking ass.

More Info:
Despite the comic book sounding title, “The Cape” is not based on a comic book. The premise finds an honest cop name Vince Faraday (to be played by Aussie actor David Lyons, “ER”) framed and hunted down by bad guys in a fictional city. After he’s believed killed, Faraday takes up the identity of The Cape, a costumed superhero (but with no powers) who teams up with a group of former carnival types to battle the city’s corrupted police force and assorted bad guy politicians. Our hero’s quest is to clear his name as well as be reunited with his loving son.

The angle? No one actually has superpowers, though they do wear costumes. Which, ironically, makes it sort of the complete opposite of “Heroes”, NBC’s latest bona fide hit.

NBC has ordered the pilot, from creator Tom Wheeler. Lloyd Braun and Gail Berman will executive produce.
