Powerless is DC’s first official comedy series, and hopefully it will be a breath of fresh air within their line-up of shows. With the CW universe chugging along really well with Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl as well as Fox finding success with Gotham, NBC has a lot to prove on whether or not a full-on comedy series will work within the genre.
In a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.
Powerless premieres at 8:30/7:30c on NBC, right after Superstore. Are you excited to follow the adventures at Wayne Security? Sound off in the comments below.
