NBC is now officially rejoining the superhero TV game by ordering Powerless to its fall schedule.
NBC is going full steam ahead after ordering a pilot for the half-hour workplace sitcom that takes place within the DC Universe at an insurance company that deals with the aftermath damage of superhero and villain fights for those without powers. The series will be focused on the employees as they are on a quest to find powers of their own. Currently there is no news on which DC characters are showing up, but with as wide a range of characters DC Comics has, they’ll do just fine.
Series lead Emily will be played by Vanessa Hudgens of Spring Breakers and is joined by Community‘s Danny Pudi as Teddy, A to Z‘s Christina Kirk, and Alan Tudyk of Firefly as Del. Powerless marks creator Ben Queen’s second show with NBC, having created the sitcom A to Z back in 2014.
The new show marks NBC’s latest jump into the DC Comics pool since Constantine was cancelled after one season in early 2015.
