[ # ] 5 Things You Don’t Know About NBC’s Powerless Like Vanessa Hudgens’ All-Time Crush
February 9th, 2017 under DC Comics


Last week, the power of Powerless made us fall in love with DC Comic’s first comedy. Tonight at 8:30p be prepared to fall even more in love with the show that stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi and Ron Funches as the people who make the products that keep Charm city safer from the villains and superheroes.
Now we know the basics about it, what are 5 things you don’t know about it.

1 – Powerless was not originally about inventors when it first started out, the show’s executive producer Patrick Schumaker explained how it transformed into the one we now know at NBC’s TCA Winter Press Day. He said, “Let’s say 15 weeks into this, we decided that the insurance company angle was not really generating the type of storylines that we wanted to be telling, and we had a nice sit down with DC in the studio with Geoff Johns and kind of brainstormed where else we could take it that we could tell classic workplace comedy stories but in a way that kind of activates the DC universe a little bit more and brings that into the office a little bit more.” Then he added, “We landed on security products because we still wanted to do the idea that they are working on stuff that makes everybody like you or me a little bit safer in a world where demigods are flying around in the sky, wrecking buildings, causing falling rubble and that sort of thing. We thought it was more interesting to sort of go on the preventive side of things. Then, after we had hit the security angle, we sat down with NBC, and they were the ones that suggested R&D, and we loved it, kind of immediately generated stories.”

2 – One such story was last week’s pilot, Schumaker revealed. “The first episode is called Wayne or Lose. It came about because, you know, obviously, there’s a lot of recognition in the Wayne name. It is ultimately Bruce Wayne’s company. It’s a subsidiary of Wayne Industries, but this takes place in Charm City, totally, you know, made up city for this version of the show. We are saying this takes place in Earth-P, which is like power of his own, you know, universe within the overall DC multiverse.”

3 – Who is Vanessa Hudgens favorite superhero? She told us, “I love Catwoman. Michelle Pfeiffer Catwoman is my all time crush. So I dressed up as Catwoman every day when I was like 4 years old. That’s the nerdy part of me, yeah.”

4 – Why does Danny Pudi look up to superheros? Because as a kid, he confessed, “In terms of, like, nerd stuff, I grew up Polish dancing.”

5 – I recognize Ron Funches, but he looks different than he did on Undateable. He proudly admitted why, “I lost 130 pounds.” Here’s how it changed him, “Lifewise, I just have more energy, and I just feel better. I am sweating less on set; so that’s good. Then I just think it’s helpful rolewise as far as people are seeing me more as, like, the full actor instead of just like a fat best friend type of thing, and also, I have sex more. So that’s good.”

As good as Powerless, so tune in tonight and every Thursday at 8:30p on NBC for superhero show that is unlike all the other ones!
