Vanessa Hudgens Set To Star In NBC’s and DC Comics Comedy ‘Powerless’
Today, Entertainment Weekly revealed that Spring Breakers, Sucker Punch and former Disney Channel star Vanessa Hudgens has been cast in the work place comedy Powerless. The show just like The Office will premiere on NBC and take place at the worse insurance claim company in America….that so happens to also be set in the DC Universe.
Hudgens plays Emily Locke an “insurance claims adjuster who loves her job because she gets to help people. Emily 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.”
It’s unknown which “DC Universe” this will be apart of given Batman, Wonder Woman and (for now) Superman are off limits for television. With The Flash crossing over networks to Supergirl next month it’s entirely possible this may lead to The Flash or Arrow appearing on this show. Of course that is pure speculation…
Powerless will debut on NBC this Fall
