A DC Comics property of a different type may be coming to NBC soon as the network has ordered a pilot for a comedy series based in the DC Universe called “Powerless”.
The series according to Entertainment Weekly will be “The Office with superheroes.”
The story further states, ‘NBC has ordered a comedy pilot set in the DC Comics universe “full of superheroes, villains and people just like us.” The title is Powerless and it’s billed as “an office comedy about the exceedingly average employees at an insurance company and their quest to find their own power.”’
The move seems like a head scratcher to many as the CW has found a lot of success with more serious super hero fare.
