Powerless premiere date set for February by NBC
Today, NBC has announced their lineup for the midseason and with it comes the Powerless premiere date. The ensemble comedy, set in the world of the DC Universe, will premiere Thursday, February 2 at 8:30 p.m.
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.
The Powerless show cast also includes Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Danny Pudi (Community, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Ron Funches (Undateable), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates, Steven Universe) and Christina Kirk (A To Z, Manhattan).
Ben Queen serves as writer and executive producer. Director Michael Patrick Jann (pilot) also executive produces. Powerless is produced by Warner Bros. Television and based on the characters from DC Comics.
