Vanessa Hudgens has been cast in the upcoming NBC comedy, Powerless, based on characters from the DC Comics Universe.

Powerless tells the tale of the worst insurance company in America, set in a world where superheroes exist. The comedy looks at the lives of these normal workers who are powerless in a world of heroes and villains.

Hudgens will play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves her job because she gets to help people. The character likes to fly under the radar and just get her work done, and she finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes that proliferate in her city.

Powerless is currently in pilot production, but looking at NBC’s track record with the superhero genre, Powerless may be a way to redeem itself.
