Vanessa Hudgens to Star in NBC’s DC Comics Universe-Set Comedy ‘Powerless’

By

NBC’s Office-style DC Comics comedy pilot just cast its star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vanessa Hudgens has signed on to star in the network’s single-cam project by A to Z’s Ben Queen called Powerless, which earned a pilot order last month. The pilot is described as a workplace comedy “set at one of the worst insurance companies in America — with the twist being that it also takes place in the universe of DC Comics. The comedy is about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of super heroes and villains.” Hudgens will play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who “likes to fly under the radar and just get her work done. She finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various Super Heroes that proliferate in her city.”
