Painkiller Jane
SCI FI Channel
December 10, 9/8c p.m.

After letting it sit on a development shelf for more than two years gathering dust (and after some last-minute tinkering and re-shoots), the Sci Fi channel has finally set an air date for the pilot of the abandoned series, Painkiller Jane. The show was originally set to air in 2003.

The storyline is based on the Event Comics series of the same name. It follows the life of the character “Jane Browning,” a marine who is transformed into a super hero after an accident with a biochemical weapon. He powers include incredible self-healing as well as increased physical strength and mental abilities.

The title character is played by modern B-movie scream queen, Emmanuelle Vaugier (Saw II, Wishmaster 3, Smallville, Andromeda). Other cast member include Tate Donovan (The O.C.), Richard Roundtree (Se7en, Q: The Winged Serpent), Eric Dane (X-Men 3) and Michael Eklund (House of the Dead).
