NBC Calls For The Cape

US TV Network NBC has given the greenlight to a pilot for a "light" drama series called The Cape, about a former cop who is set up as a criminal and decides to become a masked hero to clear his name and reunite with his son, according to The Hollywood Reporter . We're not entirely sure if the show will fit into SFX territory, but it is described as having "a comic book sensibility". Set in a fictionalized version of Los Angeles (do we need a fictionalised version?) the show is being written by Tim Wheeler. Sounds to us like this could end up being the 21st Century version of the '60s Batman series.
