NBC are about to unveil their new comedy series based on the universe crafted in DC Comics, so naturally TV spots are being released. The very first of these reveals Wayne Security, the new setting for Powerless!
This setting wasn’t always the plan for the series though, it was revealed in December 2016 that the show would move from an Insurance firm to Wayne Security. This is obviously a direct link to Bruce Wayne, though fans shouldn’t expect to see Ben Affleck pop up in the show – we don’t believe that this show is in the DCEU, though it’s not a part of the Arrowverse either.
In a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.
Powerless will debut on Thursday, February 2.
