Punch Leaves “Powers”
Actress Lucy Punch has decided to drop out of Powers.
Based on the comic book series by Brian Michael Bendis, the television pilot was passed on by FX last month and send back for some changes.
Punch was cast as Deena Pilgrim in the pilot.
Bendis has insisted that her departure does not spell the end for the project.
“Though Lucy Punch has moved on, Powers TV is not dead,” Bendis wrote on Facebook. “If it was I would tell you honest and true. New scripts have been ordered for more episodes and there will be news in May about how we are going forward. The network is behind us all the way. It’s quite nice. It’s going to be a long haul but it’s all about quality. I desperately want the best show we can make.”
