Seems from this poster released for San Diego Comic-Con that NBC’s new DC universe-based sitcom, Powerless, will be set in a company called Retcon Insurance. That’s presumably an injoke referring to the number of times superheroes’ stories get retconned in the comics world. It’s endemic, we tell you!
Powerless stars Vanessa Hudgens (Grease Live, High School Musical) as Emily, a go-getting young insurance adjuster specialising in helping the powerless make claims against the powered. After she stands up to one a superhero during a battle that interrupts her commute one day she accidentally becomes a cult hero in her own right to her co-workers.
Powerless also stars Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Danny Pudi (Community), Ron Funches (Undateable), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates) and Christina Kirk (A To Z, Manhattan). Ben Queen (Cars, A To Z) is writer and executive producer.
