The new DC Comics comedy series from NBC, Powerless, has been ordered to series later this year and now we have our first official images (below)… and a logo (above)

The images feature FTN favourites Alan Tudyk (Firefly) and Danny Pudi (Community) as well as the show’s lead, Vanessa Hudgens.

The show sees Hudgens play Emily who works in an insurance company that look after the damage caused by, you guessed it, Superhero and Supervillains.

It looks like The Office meets Justice League and, we’ll not lie, we’re intrigued… whatever happens, seeing Tudyk and Pudi together in a DC show should be worth the effort alone.

Here’s the full synopsis:

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.

“Powerless” stars Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi, Alan Tudyk, and Christina Kirk. Ben Queen and Michael Patrick Jann will executive produce the series.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
