NBC has picked up the comedy pilot Powerless to series, which is based on the world of DC Comics, starring Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Alan Tudyk (Firefly), Danny Pudi (Community) and Christina Kirk (A to Z).
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.
Below are the first promotional photos of Powerless.
