NBC is Powerless Against DC’s Newest TV Show

Powerless - Season PilotThe life of a superhero is serious business… most of the time.

It’s been announced that NBC has given a series order to DC Comic‘s newest television series, Powerless.

The single-camera comedy stars Vanessa Hudgens, along with Danny Pudi, Alan Tudyk and Christina Kirk. The show offers a “working man’s view of superheroes.” It’s the first comedy series set within the DC Universe.

The official description has been released:

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.

The pilot episode was written by Ben Queen who will also serve as Executive Producer along with the pilot’s director, Michael Patrick Jann.

The show is the second DC property to air on NBC in recent years. Constantine lasted one season on the channel. Currently The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs on The CW; Gotham and Lucifer air on Fox; Preacher will air on AMC; Krypton has a pilot order from Syfy; and Supergirl‘s fate is unknown over at CBS.
