The Powers series, which spans ten episodes, will debut in March through the PlayStation Network. The first three episodes will be released on March 10, with the remaining seven installments scheduled to arrive every Tuesday thereafter through April.

The first episode in the Powers series, which sees Copley and co-star Susan Heyward (The Following) charged with protecting humans and investigating cases involving super-human beings known as "powers," will be free for everyone. Meanwhile, the full season will be available free for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Sony did not announce a price for the full season for non-Plus users.

Competitor Microsoft shut down its own original entertainment division, Xbox Entertainment Studios, late last year. However, the Steven Spielberg-produced Halo show is still in the works.
