“The Cape” is about a man who lost everything and is about to take it all back. David Lyons (“ER”) stars as Vince Faraday, a cop framed for crimes he did not commit, forcing him to team up with a group of carnival misfits to take a new identity, fight crime, and win his family back. Fueled by a desire to reunite with his wife, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin, “Life on Mars”) and son, Trip (Ryan Wynott, “Flash Forward”), Faraday becomes “The Cape” (his son’s favorite comic book superhero) taking the law into his own hands and battling the criminal forces that have overtaken Palm City.
