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 2/22/17)  This show debuted with passable numbers that were comparable to the other NBC Thursday night entries. But it has dropped notably since then which puts it firmly On the Bubble at this point. If it does not turn things around soon, this one could find itself booted from the schedule.
