Vanessa Hudgens DC Comics superhero comedy gets series order

DC Comics is offiically launching a comedy series on NBC.

The network has given a series order to Powerless, which stars Vanessa Hudgens (Grease Live)
as a “spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people
coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes.”
(Think The Office meets Agents of SHIELD minus Marvel).

More details about the pilot storyline: “It’s
when [Hudgens’ character] 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.”

Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi and Christina Kirk are also in the cast, with Ben Queen as writer and executive producer.
