Deadline is reporting that production on NBC’s upcoming DC workplace comedy Powerless has been delayed, owing to the departure of showrunner Ben Queen due to “creative differences.”
Production on Powerless was slated to get underway later this month, although Queen’s departure is not expected to affect the show’s premiere date, as it is slated to debut midseason.

“Vanessa Hudgens stars as Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. 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 co-workers. 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.”
Powerless sees Vanessa Hudgens (Spring Breakers) joined in the cast by Alan Tudyk (Firefly), Danny Pudi (Community), Christina Kirk (A to Z), Ron Funches (Undateable) and Kate Micucci (The Big Bang Theory).
