NBC’s Powerless has just received its first TV spot, showing exactly why living in a world of superheroes “super sucks.” Though, it isn’t completely terrible, as there are groups of people who specialize in aiding would-be victims of the disastrous antics of super-people.
The trailer centers around Powerless main character, Emily Locke, as she gains employment in the research & development department at Wayne Security, a subdivision corporate goliath, Wayne Enterprises. The enthusiam for her new career is clear as she holds the paperback edition of a book titled “Wayne or Lose.”
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 Thursday, February 2 at 8:30 pm ET/PT on NBC.
