Vanessa Hudgens has snagged a role in the newest DC Comics project Powerless.
The show is a comedic take on an insurance company examining how the rest of us cope in the world of superheroes and villains. Hudgens is set to play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves her job because she gets to help people. Understandably, she finds her work complicated by the various superheroes that proliferate in her city.
This is her first major TV real, and if the show – which is currently a pilot – were to be picked up it would be the first DC related comedy show.
