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.
