NBChas announced that they would be picking up the DC Comics series, Powerless for the 2016-2017 TV season.
Powerless is set in a world where superheroes exist and lets us experience it through the eyes of regular employees at an insurance company.
Below is the official description for the series:
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.
Powerless was created by Ben Queen, and stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi and Christina Kirk. Currently, NBC is the only broadcast network who doesn’t have a superhero or comics based series running this season, as they passed on Constantine last year.
