Auli’i Cravalho & Toni Collette Star In A Sci-Fi-ish Thriller Series About Teenage Girls With Electrical Powers

Feb 7, 2023

Way back in 2019, it was announced that filmmaker Reed Morano, a cinematographer turned director (“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Rhythm Section”), would adapt, along with Jane Featherstone, the book “The Power” from novelist Naomi Alderman. The book centered on a central premise of women developing the ability to release electrical jolts from their fingers, thus leading them to become the dominant sex. And well, cut to four years later, and “The Power” is nearly here, though Reed and Featherstone are only listed as execs and directed none of the episodes; probably a change in creative direction along the way.
