NBC’s The Cape – Trailer

The Cape, starring Dave Lyons (NBC)

Lyons [plays] Vince Faraday, an honest cop on a corrupt police force, who finds himself framed for a series of murders and presumed dead. He is forced into hiding, leaving behind his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, “Life on Mars”) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, “Flash Forward”). Fueled by a desire to reunite with his family and to battle the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City, Faraday becomes “The Cape” his son’s favorite comic book superhero — and takes the law into his own hands.
Additional cast: James Frain (“The Tudors”) plays billionaire Peter Fleming – The Cape’s nemesis – who moonlights as the twisted killer named Chess. Keith David (Death at a Funeral) plays Max Malini, the ringleader of a circus gang of bank robbers who mentors Vince Faraday and trains him to be The Cape; Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) plays Orwell, an investigative blogger who wages war on crime and corruption in Palm City; and Dorian Missick (“Six Degrees”) is Marty Voyt, a former police detective and friend to Faraday.

I’m sure some folks will call this cheesy looking (and yep in parts there is the whiff of cheese) and all that but personally I’m really looking forward to this. It’s looks like it could be fun and well he has a cape and hood, Summer Glau, an arch nemesis oh and he’s trained by an old magician…I know I’m easily impressed.
