via Comic Book Resources

"Powerless" is a go at NBC, as the DC Comics workplace comedy starring Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk and Danny Pudi has been ordered to series.

According to Variety, "Grease Live" star Vanessa Hudgens will play Emily, a "spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes."

The official synopsis is as follows:

When Emily stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures that she accidentally becomes a cult “hero” in her own right — even if it’s just to her group of lovably quirky co-workers. Now, while she navigates her normal, everyday life against an explosive backdrop, Emily might just discover that being a hero doesn’t always require superpowers.

Hudgens will be joined by "Community's" Danny Pudi, "Firefly's" Alan Tudyk, and "A - Z's" Christina Kirk. Ben Queen, who wrote the screenplay to Disney's "Cars 2," wrote the pilot for "Powerless," and will serve as executive producer alongside TV director Michael Patrick Jann.
