Description: In the first comedy series set in the universe of DC Comics, Vanessa Hudgens plays Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. But it’s when she stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures (after an epic battle messes with her commute) that she accidentally becomes a cult “hero” in her own right… even if it’s just to her group of lovably quirky coworkers. Now, while she navigates her normal, everyday life against an explosive backdrop, Emily might just discover that being a hero doesn’t always require superpowers. NBC.com

Status: (Updated 3/20/17)  This show’s numbers remained low and it is looking pretty weak for an NBC entry at this point. I have adjusted its status to Cancellation Likely and the show could find itself booted from the schedule altogether if it drops any further. It could use a Call to Action from its fans to give it some support, but that needs to be LOUD and RIGHT NOW!
