#WrinkleinTime BEHIND-THE-SCENES CLIP

Vanessa Hudgens DC Comics “Powerless”

Vanessa Hudgens has been cast in NBC’s DC Comics comedy pilot “Powerless,” Variety has learned. The starring role is Hudgens’ first gig after “Grease Live,” for which she received rave reviews.

Based on characters from the DC universe, “Powerless” is a workplace comedy set at 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.

Hudgens will play Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster who loves her job because she gets to help people. The character likes to fly under the radar and just get her work done, and she finds herself increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes that proliferate in her city.

The role marks Hudgens’ first regular role on a TV series. The triple-threat rose to worldwide fame on Disney Channel’s “High School Musical,” which spawned two sequels, including a theatrical release. Most recently, she stunningly played Rizzo on Fox’s live “Grease” TV musical, and was touted as the star of the show, despite her father passing away just hours before the broadcast. Her film credits include “Spring Breakers,” alongside James Franco; “Machete Kills”; and “Sucker Punch.” She is repped by CAA.

“Powerless” hails from Warner Bros. Television, and marks the latest DC project to make its way to television, following the CW’s “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and “iZombie” from DC’s Vertigo imprint, Fox’s “Gotham” and “Supergirl” on CBS. Should the pilot go to series, it would be the only DC comedy on television.

The single-cam, half-hour comedy was penned by Ben Queen, who will exec produce. Michael Patrick Jann will direct the ensemble pilot.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See 12 STRONG on January 16th at 7:00 PM in Las Vegas.

Chris Hemsworth and Oscar nominee, Michael Shannon, star in 12 STRONG.

Set in the harrowing days following 9/11, a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Navid Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans—accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers. But despite their uneasy bond, the new allies face overwhelming odds: outnumbered and outgunned by a ruthless enemy that does not take prisoners.



Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig and based on the acclaimed “Horse Soldiers” book by …
