In November, production will begin on a new hour-long drama for the SciFi Channel titled Painkiller Jane, based on the Dynamite Entertainment comic book of the same name. The new series will feature Kristanna Loken of Terminator 3 as the titular character, a woman who can instantly heal and regenerate from any injury, but still feels pain, nonetheless. She works for a covert agency and hunts "Neuros," powerful humans with super mental powers. The series is set to premiere next Spring, with a syndication deal scheduled for the Fall. Twenty-two episodes of the series have been ordered. The original comic book was created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada for Event Comics in the mid '90s before switching over to Dynamite Entertainment, a company that also publishes comic book versions of Xena and Battlestar Galactica.
