Sony PlayStation's comic book adaptation Powers has a release date: March 10.

The first original live-action series for PlayStation Network, which follows a detective who investigates cases that involve people with super powers, will be available for members of Sony's PlayStation Plus service, but the first episode will be free for everyone at PlayStation.com/Powers.

Powers' initial three episodes will be available March 10, followed by the debut of a new episode every Tuesday.

The company first announced Powers, a ten-episode series based on the Brian Michael Bendis comic, last March, and originally slated the series for a December 2014 release. The Sony Pictures Television-produced project has been in development for years and at one point landed at FX. Charlie Huston and Remi Aubuchon are the project's showrunners.

"As I sift through different cuts of the episodes and the raw footage, I’ve been hearing from our cast on the set about how much fun everyone has been having," said Bendis in an announcement on Tuesday. "They battled the Atlanta weather and the flu and they pulled together and really gave it their all." Bendis added that comic book stores and Comixology.com will be selling a a special version of the original book, "a perfect place for new readers and old to hop on board the world of Powers."

Bendis also revealed the key art from the series: "It’s just a little tease, a little taste, of what’s to come over the next couple of months."
