Powerless Vanessa Hudgens Alan Tudyk Danny Pudi Banner

It's been announced that NBC has given a series order to the superhero workplace comedy Powerless. The series takes place in the DC Comics universe, and stars Vanessa Hudgens as Emily, a "spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes.”

The show also stars Alan Tudyk (Firefly) as Del, Emily's new boss in the claims department and "a self-proclaimed 'rich, over-educated globetrotting wastrel,'" while other cast members include Danny Pudi (Community) as Emily's best friend and co-worker, and Christina Kirk (Manhattan, A to Z) as Jackie, "a massive superhero fan who work as Del's assistant."

Bellow you'll find additional details on the storyline of the pilot episode, as well as the first offiical images from the series. Are you interested in checking out Powerless?

It’s when Emily 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.

Not sold on Vanessa Hudgens in the lead role

she looks way too young for the part. On the other hand, Alan Tudyk is a great addition to any project.

I'm taking a "wait and see" attitude towards this one.

I have no idea what to make of this, or Marvel's version the superhero cleanup crew. Both could be intriguing, both could suck something awful. I am making no judgement on either, I am curious to see what they are like. But I'll be honest, when Agents of Shield tried to do the "in the superhero world without superheroes" it didn't work or go over well. So I'm not sure this will either.

Once I saw the draft of 2800 bucks, I admit that my sister was like really generating cash in his free time with his COM. My aunt has done this for only 6 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new BMW..O4...
