E! News has released the first footage from Powerless, NBC’s upcoming office comedy that’s set in the DC Comics universe. A trailer leaked last summer, but was never officially released. Since then, the show has been given a soft reboot, and will now take place inside a division of Wayne Enterprises.
Vanessa Hudgens plays Emily Locke, the new director of Research and Development at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that develops products to help keep defenseless bystanders a little safer during a superhero battle. She quickly discovers that her big ideas are a little bigger than those of her boss (Alan Tudyk) and her coworkers (Danny Pudi, Ron Funches, and Christina Kirk), so it’s up to her to teach the team that you don’t need superpowers to be a superhero.
Powerless premieres Thursday, February 2 at 8:30 pm on NBC.
