Watch Previews Of NBC’s New Superhero Drama The Cape

On the eve of its upfront presentation, NBC has released three preview clips for The Cape, a new superhero drama that will debut at midseason.

Created by Thomas Wheeler (Empire), The Cape stars David Lyons (ER) as Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who is framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. Forced to leave his wife Dana (Life on Mars‘ Jennifer Ferrin) and son Trip (FlashForward’s Ryan Wynott) and go into hiding, Faraday assumes the identity of The Cape, his son’s favorite comic-book superhero, to take the law into his own hands.

The series also stars James Frain, Keith David, Summer Glau and Dorian Missick.

    This looks about as good as Night Man: The Series.

    Random appearance by a copy of Mystery Incorporated from Alan Moore's 1963, though. Nice.

    the concept seems to be recycling night man. plus the cape out fit looks like the love child of the spirit and cloak wearing a trash bag

    I'll wait for the trade – er… I mean, the DVD.
