NBC Orders Pilot Of THE OFFICE Style DC Comics Comedy POWERLESS

Are you ready for a very different type of superhero TV show? NBC are moving ahead with Powerless, a comedy in the style of The Office which explores a very different side of the DC Universe. Hit the jump for details on the premise and where things stand with the series...

With the likes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow on TV, there are a lot of superheroes currently dominating the small screen right now. That's what makes the concept of Powerless so exciting, and it's been confirmed today that NBC have given the drama a pilot order. Described as The Office with superheroes, it's gong to be set firmly in the DC Universe and is being written by Ben Queen (Cars 2). The official description reveals that it's set in a world, "full of superheroes, villains and people just like us." It adds that Powerless is going to be, "an office comedy about the exceedingly average employees at an insurance company and their quest to find their own power." Whether we'll see any familiar heroes and villains show up remains to be seen, but this definitely has some potential, and will likely air on NBC this Fall if things go well.
