Viral Video: BermanBraun Doesn't Just Make Web Sites ("The Cape" on NBC Debuts Soon)

Here is a new teaser trailer for a midseason replacement television show on NBC called “The Cape.”

It’s from Hollywood multimedia production company BermanBraun, which is known in tech for the handsome content sites it makes for Microsoft’s MSN portal, such as the celebrity-focused Wonderwall.

“The Cape” is about a good cop who is framed and has to turn himself into a crime-fighting hero to regain his old life and family. With a cape, natch.

There is a lot of broodiness and moodiness and there are also carnival misfits in the show, which premieres January 9.

Here is the trailer for the show:
