Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi and Christina Kirk join Vanessa Hudgens in superhero comedy series Powerless

The latest DC TV series is a superhero show with a difference; Powerless centres on an insurance company set in the DC world that has to deal with the chaos, carnage and destruction caused by a world of superheroes and villains. And as production ramps up the show, NBC have announced some key cast members.

First up is Vanessa Hudgens, headlining the series as Emily Locke, “an insurance claims adjuster who loves helping people and keeping a low profile in order to get her work done, who faces increasing frustration with the destructive antics of superheroes in her city.

Joining Hudgens is cult-actor Alan Tudyk, playing playing Del, an overeducated dictator boss. Danny Pudi of Community fame will be playing Teddy, Emily’s prank-pulling colleague. Finally Christina Kirk will be playing Jackie, Del’s overworked PA who has a soft spot for hulking superheroes.

Given that it will be airing on NBC, it is unlikely Powerless will be connected to The CW's The Flash and Arrow or CBS's Supergirl. Whether the 30-minute episodes features iconic DC superheroes or just makes reference to the destruction caused by them remains to be seen.
