NBC is developing what sounds like one of the weirdest, and possibly one of the coolest, new series we've heard about in a while. It's titled Powerless, and Deadline describes it as basically The Office, if The Office took place in the DC universe.
Yes, there are so many DC shows on TV now that it's starting to bleed into comedy.
Based on characters from DC Comics, Powerless is a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America — 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.
Apparently there were several networks looking at this one, but NBC has reportedly snatched it up and committed to producing a pilot.
If that means we'll get to see Green Arrow put Aquaman's stapler in Jello, we're in. So in.
