NBC Making “The Office” Type Show With DC Superheroes


So in the weirdest bit of nerd news in a long time, it seems NBC is going to be working on a DC comics show that is very much set up like the recent reality-fake- comedy show, The Office.

NBC has ordered a comedy pilot set in the DC Comics universe “full of superheroes, villains and people just like us.” The title is Powerless and it’s billed as “an office comedy about the exceedingly average employees at an insurance company and their quest to find their own power.” Ben Queen (Cars 2) is the writer. So it’s a bit like… DC’s Agents of Allstate?

May be odd, but could be hilarious if done with the right satirical tone. Will keep you posted as more news of this odd and kooky DC show leaks.
