SCI FI GREENLIGHTS 'PAINKILLER JANE'

Original Series From Insight Film Studios Premieres January 2007 Syndication Window Follows in the Fall

PASADENA, Calif. - July 13, 2006 - SCI FI has greenlit production on Painkiller Jane, a female superhero actioner from Vancouver's Insight Film Studios and Kickstart Comics. Production on 22 one-hour episodes will begin next month at Insight Film Studios in Vancouver. The series will premiere on SCI FI starting in January 2007, followed by a domestic broadcast weekly syndication window in Fall 2007. Cast has not yet been finalized.

Based on the eponymous comic book created by Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada, Painkiller Jane is the story of Jane Vasko, a young researcher trying to make a difference as the world faces its greatest drug addiction epidemic. When Jane catches wind of a budding conspiracy, and a secret research program within her corporation, she turns DEA informant. Thus threatening to expose corruption within one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, Jane becomes a target. However, she is accidentally exposed to an experimental "cure" that renders her impervious to sickness and injury but not pain. Unfortunately for Jane, these powers come at a price: she has less than a month left to live before the cure's unstable nature overtakes her. Jane continues to develop new abilities. After each injury, she heals stronger than she had been. But the pain remains and intensifies as she races to turn the tables on her pursuers, and save her own life.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Insight Film

I found the movie extremely underwhelming, and the lack of super strength was only part of the problem. They need to do a lot of work make the TV series watchable.

I agree, but I get the feeling that they are changing some stuff. the fact that they mention that she heals stronger than she had been indicates that she might have super strength (well, buffy style super strengh) but you never know... I hope it will be better than the pilot.

:D

Agreed, pwrhaus! Just not even looking for super strength in her, I found the movie incredibly boring! And Ms Vaugier, a beautiful, beautiful woman, but could they make her any less 'desirable' than they did in that film. Perhaps in was the 'fashion runway' haircut which I couldn't get past....but didn't really do it for me. Hopefully, better this time around...

SuperheroHype reports (via SciFi Channel) that Painkiller Jane (with Kristina Lokken) will be part of the Friday Night lineup staring in April 2007....let's hope its substantially better than the telefilm...
