LOS ANGELES (AP) - A comedy series starring Vanessa Hudgens and set in the DC Comics world is coming to NBC.

The network said Wednesday it’s ordered “Powerless” for the 2016-17 season.

Hudgens plays Emily, an insurance adjuster who specializes in damage caused by superheroes. She becomes a hero herself after standing up to the big shots after an especially messy fight.

NBC also is ordering “Trial & Error,” described as by the network as a fish-out-of-water comedy. Nicholas D’Agosto plays a New York lawyer who takes on his first big case in a small Southern town.

The cast includes Jayma Mays and Sherri Shepherd, with John Lithgow as the defendant.

NBC and other broadcast networks are set to unveil their full new-season schedules for advertisers in New York City next week.
