It’s The Office with superheroes.

NBC has ordered a comedy pilot set in the DC Comics universe “full of superheroes, villains and people just like us.” The title is Powerless and it’s billed as “an office comedy about the exceedingly average employees at an insurance company and their quest to find their own power.” Ben Queen (Cars 2) is the writer. So it’s a bit like… DC’s Agents of Allstate?

Powerless is one of four pilots ordered by the network on Thursday that also include Marlon Wayans potentially returning to TV in a self-titled series. The pitch: “Loosely inspired by Marlon Wayans’ life, this multi-camera comedy centers on an inappropriate but loving father (Wayans) committed to successfully co-parenting with his polar opposite ex-wife.”

Sort of reminds me of that youtube thin with the DC and Marvel action figures.
>>
Sounds like a Robot Chicken sketch.

Er, wasn't Waynehead about Marlon Wayans' life? Cuz that wasn't very good.
>>
>DC Extended Universe
>comedy
Good luck

Let me guess, they'll all talk to an invisible camera crew and make dry witty remarks?

Fuck this shit.
>>
>>78807007
>MMMMMMMMMMM BOYS
Also it probably won't be a part of the DCEU
>>
>>78806844
The first thread for this was funny as fuck

main characters or OC ones

What if the Office was set in the DC universe
Dunder Mifflin the people person's paper people

>Cars 2 writer

Oh.
>>
Oh, what's that? You want thing? Here, have unrelated thing.
>>
>>78806844
If they add these two guys I'm in.
>>
I could make a tv station tomorrow and dc would give me the rights to a show.
>>
>>78807599
What would a DC show on BET look like?
>>
>>78806844
So, somewhere between Teen Titans Go! and the Justice League sketches from Robot Chicken.

It'll probably be shit.
>>
>>78807792
DC don't have enough black characters for that unless its Milestone
>>
Sounds like absolute shite. Of course they're still afraid to just outright do a regular superhero show, regardless of how good Flash is doing.
>>
I swear I just read about there being a 90s version of this earlier.
>>
>>78807562
Those are gonna be in the movies so they can't be in a tv show

A JLI show in the style of the Office would be amazing. But embargo so, nope

Man, are those even still a thing? I haven't seen or thought about one of those videos in years.
>>
>Implying it'll even get renewed.

>>78806844
I always wish for more workcoms
But I dunno about NBC
>>
>>78810352
Yeah. That guy rarely upload videos but he still does them
>>
>>78806844
Isn't that just /co/'s Hydra series?
>>
Jesus Christ /co/ is a bunch of retards or shills I can't tell what.

Superheroes will NOT be in the show and they aren't secret agents.

I work in insurance this is how the calls are gonna go

>Superman was fighting Zod and landed on my car

>I'm sorry ma'am but it doesn't look like you have comprehensive on your car just collision.

>This isn't considered a collision!?

>Well no ma'am, we classify superheroes as acts of God, no one is liable.
>>
>So my wife was killed by Black Manta

>Oh I am so sorry, that actually isn't covered under the basic protection, you have to have our SV Gold Pack.

>My god....I'm...I'm gonna lose everything.

>I'm so sorry sir, would you like to upgrade in case you are killed by a super villain, your child would definitely appreciate it and they are known to attack the same areas.
>>
>>78806844
So they're reviving this old pitch? I'm pretty sure I heard somebody pitch this exact concept a couple of years ago...
It's like that Green Arrow "Supermax" movie pitch that kept resurfacing here until the "Arrow" TV series finally got made.
>>
>uhh hey batman, wanna go play some baseball?
>laugh track, star wipe to bathroom

You fucking idiot. It's about an insurance company in the DCU. Not superheroes.
>>
This thread proves to me that 95% of /co/ cannot read

>>78814795
>please respond
>>
>>78814795
It's not that they can't, it's that they don't. They just read the title of the thread and made assumptions based on that. Welcome to 2016.
>>
>>78807988

DC has a fuck load of Black characters that actually have a personality. Marvel has nothing as good as Waller and Manta

i don't think that's a thing any longer

https://variety.com/2015/tv/news/the-cw-warner-bros-dc-the-flash-arrow-1201646970/

There's probably a ban between shows, I'm guessing Fox wouldn't be too happy if Bat villains started showing up in CW's shows.

Still wouldn't hold my breath.
>>
>>78815065
No heroes will show up in this. It's a show about people not having coverage for superheroes and villains destroying shit in the DCU.
