Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird. No, it's a plane. No, it's a giant chunk of rubble falling toward your head.
Superhero battles may look spectacular, but for ordinary people a clash of superpowered beings is fraught with danger and property damage. That's the premise for new sitcom "Powerless", which has dropped its first trailer.
The comedy follows the employees of Wayne Security, a company presumably owned by Batman's millionaire alter ego Bruce Wayne. The wacky crew helps protect the people of Charm City against the fallout from punch-ups between DC comics superheroes, with no doubt hi-laaarious consequences. Vanessa Hudgens, Danny Pudi andlead the cast.
"Powerless" has been extensively reworked. In its original form, the show was set at the amusingly named Retcon insurance company and was essentially a workplace sitcom with added mentions of superheroes. The characters have been altered, and, judging by the gags in the new trailer, the actual series will have more super-humour.
Superheroes work on screen inand , so it'll be interesting to see if caped crusaders work in an out-and-out sitcom too. "Powerless" debuts on 2 February on NBC.
