The original Zap2it article describes the show as:
The show is about a cop (David Lyons of "ER") who's framed for murder, then presumed dead in a shootout, after which he goes underground and takes on the persona of The Cape, his son's favorite comic-book hero. He joins forces with a young woman (Summer Glau, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") to try to wrest control from the corrupt forces that run his city.All I needed to hear was "Summer Glau" and "comic-book hero" and I'm already invested in this show for at least 3 episodes to see if it'll hold my interest. NBC needs a hit like no other network, could this be their savior? Will you guys be watching?
The Cape has a two-hour premiere at 9 p.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 9 and moves to Mondays the following night.
