The new NBC DC Comics comedy series Powerless has cast Vanessa Hudgens as its star.
Hudgens will play Emily Locke, described by The Wrap as 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 superheroes in her city.
Powerless has previously been described as a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America — with the twist being that it also takes place in the universe of DC Comics. It's was also previously said the focus of the series is on the ordinary, “power-less” folk working at the insurance company who often envy the men and women outside their window who make headlines with their supernatural powers.
Vanessa Hudgens is known for Highschool Musical, Spring Breakers and recently starred as Rizzo in Fox’s Grease Live musical.
