Remember when we told you all about Powerless, NBC’s new comedy series set in the DC Cinematic Universe? Remember the concept? A series focusing on an office of insurance adjusters offering coverage for damages caused by arbitrary, superhero smackdowns? Well, here’s the VERY FIRST trailer for NBC’s Powerless, featuring series protagonist Emily Locke and her moderately humorous exploits in a world of super-powered transit agitators! Look up! Press Play! Enjoy!
Yes, it’s Emily Locke, and when she’s not asking Crimson Fox to gently lay down the train car, or determining if Wonder Woman dismantling infrastructure is considered an “act of god,” she’s dealing with a new Claims Supervisor; he doesn’t give a sh*t about “Bagel Wednesday.”
As per the network’s official description-
“In the first comedy series set in the universe of DC Comics, Vanessa Hudgens (Grease Live, High School Musical) plays Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. It’s when she 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.”
