NBC's Powerless had a short network run, only 9 of 12 filmed episodes . The show had a great cast and funny premise, but it just didn't make it.


Patrick Schumaker, the show's producer co- showrunner came in to work on the series after the pilot and had to run a writer's staff to  tweak it before it's February mid season premiere . Patrick came from good comedy stock, on shows like  Surviving Jack, Shit My Dad Says  and Cougar Town 


This is a great look at today's struggles in the scripted series world
