NBC’s ‘Powerless’ Receives Premiere Date

DC’s newest television show doesn’t fly in, zoom in at sound-breaking speeds or even boom it; It just kind of casually walks in. Earlier today, NBC announced on Twitter that its DC Comics-based comedy, Powerless, will be premiering on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The new series takes place in the DC Universe and stars actress Vanessa Hudgens as Emily Locke, an insurance adjuster who specializes in aiding the citizens who are affected by the daily exploits of superheroes.

In the first comedy series set in the universe of DC Comics, Vanessa Hudgens plays Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. But 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 coworkers. 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.
