DC's live-action sitcom Powerless has added three more topline actors according to Deadline: Firefly's Alan Tudyk, A to Z's Christina Kirk, and Community's Danny Pudi. Additionally, the Hollywood trade has descriptions of all three actors' characters, as well as series star Vanessa Hudgens.
Hudgens will reportedly play an insurance claims adjuster named Emily Locke. She's described as someone who "loves her job because she gets to help people and who likes to fly under the radar and just get her work done."
Alan Tudyk is said to play Emily's new boss, Del. Described by Deadline as a "rich, over-educated globetrotting wastrel," Del received his position because of being the insurance company owner's son.
Christina Kirk, who worked with Powerless showrunner Ben Queen on A to Z, will reportedly play Del's personal assistant Jackie, a noted fangirl of male superheroes.
Community's Danny Pudi is said to be Emily's primary confidante and best friend at the insurance company. A bit of a prankster, he does so "as a way to make their office the 'least Super place on earth,' just a little less 'unsuper'."
NBC and Warner Bros. Television plan to film a Powerless pilot this spring, with a goal for the series to debut this fall.
