NBC Lands DC Comics Comedy "Powerless"

Though "Constantine" only lasted one season on NBC, the network is reteaming with DC Entertainment for another series -- this time a comedy.

Deadline reports the network has ordered "Powerless," a half-hour workplace comedy likened to "The Office," only with superheroes.

Hailing from Warner Bros. Television and "A to Z" creator Ben Queen, "Powerless" is set at one of the worst insurance companies in America, only this version is located in the DC Universe. The focus, according to the website, is the reality of being a normal person in a world filled with superhumans.

While it apparently hasn't been decided which DC characters will appear on the show, it's unlikely fans will see any of the marquee heroes.

Queen will write the pilot and executive produce.
