NBC has picked up the DC Comics comedy Powerless. The series will be a half-hour comedy and air during the 2016-2017 season.
Powerless is set in an insurance company that deals with destruction left by DC Super Heroes. Created by Ben Queen (Cars 2) and stars Alan Tudyk (Firefly), Danny Pudi (Community) and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical).
In the first comedy series set in the universe of DC Comics, Vanessa Hudgens plays Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. It’s when she stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures (after an epic battle messes with her commute) that she accidentally becomes a cult “hero” in her own right … even if it’s just to her group of lovably quirky co-workers. Now, while she navigates her normal, everyday life against an explosive backdrop, Emily might just discover that being a hero doesn’t always require superpowers.
