NBC is offering a “first look” at their new drama Heroes, which will air on Mondays next fall. The site currently features a video showing a guy jumping off a building, with a brief description of the show:
They thought they were like everyone else… until they woke with incredible abilities. In Japan, a lowly office worker can teleport at will. In New York, a struggling artist can paint the future. In Los Angeles, a discontented beat cop can hear the thoughts of others. Elsewhere, a high school cheerleader discovers she is unbreakable and a single mom realizes she has a powerful alter ego. Heroes chronicles the lives of these people and the lives of others like them — whose destiny just might be saving humankind.
NBC.com weekly exclusives include an original, animated graphic novel that follows new hero adventures.
The graphic novel isn’t up yet, but I’m interested in seeing what they do with it.
Elsewhere, The Seattle Times examines the ‘science fiction” trend of the previous Fall season. Inspired by the success of Lost, shows like Invasion and Surface hit the air in September, but were not renewed for 2006-2007. Of the genre shows that had their debut on network TV last year, only The CW’s Supernatural will be back next season.
