TV show description:
This comedy series is set in the DC Comics universe that’s also occupied by heroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and The Flash.
Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) is a spunky, young insurance adjuster who specializes in covering regular people against damage caused by crime-fighting superheroes and their villainous counterparts. When she stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures (after an epic battle messes with her commute), Emily accidentally becomes a “hero” to her quirky co-workers.
As the series begins, Emily has her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. She’s full of confidence and has big ideas but Emily quickly discovers those are a bit beyond her new boss, Vanderveer “Van” Wayne (Alan Tudyk), the black sheep of his family. Her well-meaning officemates include Chief Design Officer Teddy (Danny Pudi), Chief Engineer Ron (Ron Funches), and Jackie (Christina Kirk), Van Wayne’s beleaguered and long-suffering executive assistant.
It’s up to Emily to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.
