Vanessa Hudgens to star in NBC’s DC Comics series Powerless

After her acclaimed performance on FOX‘s Grease: Live, NBC and DC Entertainment have chosen Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers, Sucker Punch) to headline Powerless, a new series set in the DC Universe. The series will be DC Entertainment’s first foray into comedy, with the half-hour series focusing on the regular people that call the DCU home.

Hudgens will play lead character Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves helping people and keeping a low profile in order to get her work done, who faces increasing frustration with the destructive antics of superheroes in her city. 

A to Z creator Ben Queen will executive produce the series, which is described as a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America. It is about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains.

None of the A-List superheroes of the DCU, like Batman, Superman or Wonder Woman, are expected to appear in the series, though with the character’s line of work being insurance, it’s almost a given they’ll be hearing about destruction in Metropolis every other episode.
