If you do not know what NBC’s Powerless is, don’t think that you are in for another action packed DC series. It is far from that, the show premiers in February, and it will be a comedy based on Vanessa Hudgen’s character who gets her dream job at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, and her boss Alan Tudyk that plays the cousin of Bruce Wayne himself, Van Wayne.
Emily Locke lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to super heroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you donâ€™t need superpowers to be a hero.
Alan Tudyk is most recently remembered from his role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, where he voices K-2SO, but I know him from his role playing Steve the Pirate in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. He has been in a few live action films and television series such as Serenity & Firefly, Trumbo, 3:10 To Yuma, Knocked Up, A Knight’s Tale, 28 Days, and Patch Adams. However, Tudyk is most well know from voicing animated and CGI characters and some of his work includes; Ice Age, I Robot, Astro Boy, Family Guy, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Good Vibes, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, Young Justice, Chozen, and Robot Chicken.
In a promo released via the Powerless twitter account, it shows Tudyk and Hudgens in action.
