Painkiller Jane premieres April 13
Painkiller Jane, SciFi's new series based on the comic by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada, will premiere April 13 at 10:00 p.m. The series will focus on the titular character (played by Kristanna Loken) a woman who can regenerate from any injury, but still feels pain. She hunts Neuros, humans with super-mental powers, for a secret agency.
Palmiotti, who is writing at least one episode and directing another, says the series will differ somewhat from the comic book, and that each episode will be self-contained, although a larger story arc will be present throughout the series. Twenty-two episodes of the series were ordered last fall.
I like the "self-contained" episode idea, as it makes it possible for people to enjoy it who might not have been watching from the beginning.
