Following a bit of a rocky start when it was learned Powerless lost its showrunner, no worries as NBC has announced the premiere date.

Powerless, DC's new comedy TV series starring Vanessa Hudgens, will premiere on Thursday, Feb. 2nd at 8:30 pm ET.

"Powerless" stars Vanessa Hudgens as the main character Emily Locke; Danny Pudi as Teddy; Alan Tudyk as Del, Ron Funches as Ron, and Christina Kirk as Jackie.


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.
