Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Vanessa Hudgens is having a hard time distinguishing flying superheroes from birds and planes in a new 30-second promo for "Powerless," NBC's new workplace comedy with a comic book twist.
The NBC series, which also stars Community's Danny Pudi, comedian Ron Funches, and Rogue One's Alan Tudyk, is set in the universe of DC comics. However, the sitcom centers on ordinary non-super-powered people. Specifically, the office team of "Wayne Security," a company that manufactures gear and equipment that protect and safeguard citizens from harm caused by any unexpected superhero clashes.
"Powerless" will premiere on Thursday, February 2nd, after the NBC comedy series "Superstore."
Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to super heroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss 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.
directed by Michael Patrick Jann (pilot)
starring Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi, Ron Funches, Jennie Pierson, Alan Tudyk, Christina Kirk
release date February 2, 2017 (on NBC)
