If you’ve ever wondered about the innocent civilians that get caught in the middle of a superhero battle, this show is for you!
Powerless is set in Charm City, where minor super villain attacks are a daily occurrence. The show is focused on the Research and Development team of Wayne Security, a division of Wayne Enterprises run by Bruce Wayne…’s cousin.
They make products to keep civilians safer during super-fights. Their signature product is a Joker Gas Anti-Venom but they’ve pretty much been stuck without ideas since.
Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) is the new R&D boss and she desperately tries to motivate the apathetic team of researchers (Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk, & Ron Funches) into developing a new and innovative product to impress their boss (Alan Tudyk).
The pilot picks up on her first day, when she is super optimistic and full of ideas but she quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates. It is up to her to llead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.
#Powerless premieres Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
