Vanessa Hudgens to star in DC’s Powerless

Variety have broken the story that Vanessa Hudgens has been cast as Emily Locke in NBC’s DC Comics comedy pilot Powerless. Locke is 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 stressed by the disruptive antics of the various Super Heroes that proliferate in her city.

Based on characters from the DC universe, Powerless is 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 – it will focus on the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of super heroes and villains.
