SuperFriends meets The Office in this US animated workplace comedy about a team of past-their-prime superheroes looking to get back onto the justice enforcement A-List.

The Awesomes is about America's first superhero team. Formed in the 1940's, the team has gone through a revolving roster of the world's top heroes, gradually losing popularity as other, cooler superhero teams come into favor.

The Awesomes, funded by a long-standing U.S. Government contract, may be forced to disband when the current administration requests bids from other teams.

Can this motley crew of has-been heroes reclaim their glory days?

The Awesomes is from Broadway Video Television in association with Universal Media Studios. Seth Meyers (Saturday Night Live) and Michael Shoemaker (Saturday Night Live) are executive producers/writers; Lorne Michaels is executive producer; Andrew Singer is producer.
