NBC is giving another DC TV series a try, this time with Powerless, which has been said to be similar to The Office.

THR reports NBC has ordered a pilot for the new DC Powerless series, which is described as: "a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America — with the twist being that it also takes place in the universe of DC Comics."

The show was also previouslys said to be about the "reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains." It was also said the focus of the series is on the ordinary, “power-less” folk working at the insurance company who often envy the men and women outside their window who make headlines with their supernatural powers. 

As of now, it's unknown which DC Comics characters wil be featured.

Marvel has also been said to be developing a similar series with Damage Control.
