NBC Is Developing an ‘Office’-Style Workplace Comedy Set in the DC Comics Universe

dc_comicsDC Comics is heading into comedy territory at NBC. According to Deadline, the network has given a pilot production commitment to a half-hour comedy called Powerless by A to Z creator Ben Queen. The show will be a workplace comedy described as similar to The Office but set in the universe of DC Comics. No word on which characters will show up in the series, but it will center on “one of the worst insurance companies in America — with the twist being that it also takes place in the universe of DC Comics. The show is about the reality of working life for a normal, powerless person in a world of superheroes and villains.”
