As the series begins, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) 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.

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.
