New 'Hero' show picked up on NBC


NBC tries to keep the superhero theme alive with a new pilot, called 'The Cape'.
NBC on Thursday picked up two more pilots: hourlong "The Cape" and the comedy "Outsourced." "Cape," from "Empire" creator Tom Wheeler, is a light drama with a comic book sensibility. Set in a fictionalized version of Los Angeles, it centers on a former cop framed for a crime who becomes the Cape, a masked hero, to clear his name and reunite with his son.

The project, from UMS and BermanBraun, was set up at NBC in the fall with a premium script commitment.
Wheeler wrote the script and is exec producing with Lloyd Braun and Gail Berman.
Gail was the producer of Angel and Buffy, so there's some promise.

Buffy? Yes! Angel? Not so much!

Hmm, that premise doesn't sound good.
