LOS ANGELES -- Imagine living in a world where everyone gets a super power when they turn 18, except for you! That's what's happening to Jen in the new Hulu series, "Extraordinary."

Jen, played by Máiréad Tyers, is stuck in a dead-end job and would love to shake up her life, but feels her lack of a power is holding her back.

"I think her view is it would sort her life out if she got a power," Tyers told On The Red Carpet. "I think she would love to use her power to do a job because she thinks it would make her feel fulfilled. I don't think it would make her feel fulfilled."

Her friends can fly, turn back time, morph into a cat and channel the dead, but there's one super power co-star Luke Rollason said wasn't explored this season that he'd like to see.

"Imagine if, people around you, it was a musical," Rollason suggested. His co-stars Tyers, Sofia Oxenham and Bilal Hasna agreed and had a few ideas of their own, as you'll see in the video above.

"Extraordinary" is streaming now on Hulu.

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of Hulu and this ABC station.
