While having superheroes out in the open might seem pretty great, things aren't quite as glamorous as they might sound. These average humans are constantly having to clean up the messes that these powered people cause. The show is produced by Warner Bros. Television and based on the characters from DC Comics. NBC also announced additional new series coming this fall, including Trial & Error, starring John Lithgow, The Good Place, starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, plus Taken, a prequel to the film franchise- but without Liam Neeson, and Emerald City, a darker version of the Wizard of Oz stories. After all the shows canceled in the past week, it’s nice to have some new ones to look forward to. What new NBC shows are you most looking forward to? (Featured image via NBC)
