Following an acclaimed turn on “Grease: Live,” actress Vanessa Hudgens has been chosen to headline NBC and DC Entertainment’s new workplace comedy series “Powerless”. Set in the DC Universe, this will mark the company’s first foray into comedy and will focus on the regular people within that arena.
Hudgens plays Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster at one of the worst insurance companies in the country. She loves helping people and keeping a low profile in order to get her work done, but soon faces increasing frustration with the destructive antics of superheroes in her city.
“A to Z” creator Ben Queen will executive produce the series which won’t have any A-list DCU heroes like Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman in it.
