NBC has just given DC comics sitcom Powerless a series order. Variety describes the show as:
“Powerless” is the first-ever DC Comics comedy. Vanessa Hudgens stars as 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 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.
The show is produced by Ben Queen and Michael Patrick Jann, and will star Alan Tudyk, Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi, and Christina Kirk.
