Vanessa Hudgens Cast In DC Comics' Powerless

I'm all for POWERLESS getting a fair shake and I hope Hudgens can help lead this idea to solid ground.

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens will appear in NBC's planned DC Comics sitcom Powerless, THR reports.

The 27-year-old actress will play the role of Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster.

The show is "a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America" set in the DC universe filled with super heroes and villains.

The candidates spent their final hours before the caucuses furiously trying to drive up turnout among their supporters. Now the Former First Lady, after a wobbly few weeks, is very much back in what Americans call the catbird seat.

Vanessa's role in Grease: Live was critically acclaimed and we can not wait to see her take on this role! She finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes in her city. Powerless is being written by A to Z’s Ben Queen, and he will also executive produce alongside Michael Patrick Jann, who is directing the pilot. Christina Kirk is the only other confirmed co-star lined up for Powerless. She dedicated her performance to him. This also marks her first regular role on a TV series.

The comic book show landscape is already crowded, with DC battling Marvel for supremacy.

Powerless is described as The Office with superheroes, it's going to be set firmly in the DC Universe.
