Vanessa Hudgens to star in superhero comedy

Vanessa Hudgens is taking the lead in a new superhero-themed comedy, called Powerless.

The High School Musical star is heading back to the small screen for the workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America. The quirky show will feature characters from the DC Comics universe.

Hudgens will portray non-powered insurance claims adjuster Emily Locke who loves her job but gets "increasingly exasperated by the disruptive antics of the various superheroes that proliferate in her city."

Hudgens recently received acclaim for her turn in the Grease: Live TV event, but Powerless will mark her first time starring in a pilot for a potential series.
