Adam West Joins DC-Set Comedy POWERLESS

In some rather cool news, NBC’s superhero comedy effort Powerless has moved to bring in none other than former Caped Crusader, Adam West.

Whilst West won’t be donning the cape and cowl in the show, he’ll be playing the Chairman of Wayne Industries, Dean West. Even though this is great news for fans of West, it will apparently not be such good news for Alan Tudyk’s Van Wayne and Vanessa Hudgens’ Emily Locke.

On this addition, the network and show official said, “Gotham comes to Charm City when the iconic Adam West, who played the role of Batman on television in the Sixties, guest stars in an upcoming episode of Powerless as Dean West, Chairman of Wayne Industries. Following an attack on Gotham City, Wayne Industries has to make some cuts and Mr. West visits Charm City to deliver the bad news to Van and Emily. Will the dynamic duo of Van and Emily be able to save the team at Wayne Security, or are our Charm City Heroes destined for the unemployment line?”

Set in Charm City, Powerless revolves around a company, Wayne Security, that is looking to help regular citizens from becoming collateral damage in a world filled with superheroes and supervillains.

Despite having aired several episodes in the US already, Powerless has yet to be given a UK home.
