"Powerless" DC Comedy TV Series Coming To NBC

Posted: 08/17/2015 - 01:26


NBC decided to forgo Season 2 of Constantine for some reason, but now it's learned they are not done with DC just yet.

Deadline reports NBC is developing a new DC comedy series said to be in the vein of The Office, but with super heroes, titled Powerless (and a lot similar to Marvel Comics' Damage Control).

It's said Powerless will be¬†a half-hour single-camera comedy from¬†A To Z¬†creator¬†Ben Queen¬†and Warner Bros. TV based on characters from DC Comics that¬†is a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America ‚ÄĒ with the twist being that it also takes place in the¬†universe of DC Comics.¬†

The show is about the "reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains."

It's currently unknown which DC characters will appear on Powerless, but the report mentions not to expect the DC heavyweights like Batman or Superman (i.e. movie properties).

The focus of the series is on the¬†ordinary, ‚Äúpower-less‚ÄĚ folk working at the insurance company who often envy the men and women outside their window who make headlines with their supernatural powers.¬†
