Vanessa Hudgens to star in DC Comics comedy ‘Powerless’

Los Angeles, Feb 23 (IANS) Actress Vanessa Hudgens has been cast in NBC’s DC Comics comedy pilot “Powerless”.

Hudgens will play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves her job because she gets to help people, reports variety.com.

Based on characters from the DC universe, “Powerless” is a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in US 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.

Hudgens’ character likes to fly under the radar and just get her work done, and she finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes that proliferate in her city.

The role marks Hudgens’ first regular role on a TV series. She rose to worldwide fame on Disney Channel’s “High School Musical,” which spawned two sequels, including a theatrical release.

Recently, she played Rizzo on Fox’s live “Grease” TV musical, and was touted as the star of the show, despite her father passing away just hours before the broadcast.
