NBC has provided Superhero Hype! with new photos from Heroes, which will air Mondays at 9-10 p.m. EST in the network’s 2006-07 primetime line-up. You can view the shots from the pilot and of the cast members here!
The epic drama Heroes chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities. As a total eclipse casts it shadow across the globe, viewers follow a genetics professor (Sendhil Ramamurthy, “Blind Guy Driving”) in India whose father’s disappearance leads him to uncover a secret theory — there are people with super powers living among us. A young dreamer (Milo Ventimiglia, “The Bedford Diaries”) tries to convince his politician brother (Adrian Pasdar, “Judging Amy”) that he can fly. A high school cheerleader (Hayden Panettiere, “Ice Princess”) learns that she is totally indestructible. A Las Vegas stripper (Ali Larter, “Final Destination”), struggling to make ends meet to support her young son (Noah Gray-Cabey, “My Wife & Kids”), uncovers that her mirror image has a secret. A prison inmate (Leonard Roberts, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) mysteriously finds himself waking up outside of his cell. A gifted artist (Santiago Cabrera, “Empire”), whose drug addiction is destroying his life and the relationship with his girlfriend (Tawny Cypress, “Third Watch”), can paint the future. A down-on-his-luck beat cop (Greg Grunberg, “Alias”) can hear people’s thoughts, including the secrets of a captured terrorist. In Japan, a young man (Masi Oka, “Scrubs”) develops a way to stop time through sheer will power. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world.
Heroes is executive produced by creator/writer Tim Kring (“Crossing Jordan), Dennis Hammer (“Crossing Jordan”) and David Semel (“House”), who also directed the pilot. The drama is from NBC Universal Television Studio.
