Vanessa Hudgens is returning to work as she is primed to star in NBC’s DC Comics comedy pilot Powerless, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The project, which takes place in the universe of DC Comics is about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains.
Hudgens will portray Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves her job because she gets to help people, but she finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes that proliferate in her city.
Powerless is being written by Ben Queen (A to Z), who will executive produce alongside Michael Patrick Jann, with the latter set to direct the pilot.
