NBC has release the first trailer for their new DC Comics TV series “Powerless”.
In the first comedy series set in the universe of DC Comics, Vanessa Hudgens (“Grease Live,” “High School Musical”) 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 “Powerless” concept by “Z” creator Ben Queen is a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America… which exists within the DC Universe. Ben Queen is the writer/executive producer, with Michael Patrick Jann set to direct and executive produce.
