Wonder Woman show passed on by NBC:
This is a double-edged sword. As is mentioned in the article above, the classic Lynda Carter Wonder Woman memory is left in tact. The bad part is that this will make it harder and harder to ever replace Lynda Carter and Wonder Woman as a TV show. What I don’t get is all these shows that have a following and a pilot could actually get their stuff produced if it is for the web, so why don’t they sell the pilot? I’d pay to see it! The cash they get will fund the next episode. The quicker they sell $1,000,000 hits, the quicker the next episode gets made. They already plunked the cash into the original episode… now let the fans decide if they want the show to continue!
I have never seen this actress before, so I am going to go into this with an open mind.
Adrianne Palicki has been cast as the new Wonder Woman. Please please please make this show amazing!
A rep for Palicki confirmed that the actress has been tapped to play the iconic, patriotic super-heroine.
In a statement announcing Palicki’s casting, Warner Bros. Television, which will be producing the series, noted that Palicki’s version of the superhero will be revamped from Carter’s potrayal, updated for the modern age.
“The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman — a/k/a Diana Prince — is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life,” the statement reads.
The “Wonder Woman” pilot was written by David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice“), who’s co-executive producing with Bill D’Elia. Jeffrey Reiner (“Friday Night Lights,” “The Event“) is directing.
This isn’t Palicki’s first go-round with superhero-related series; she also appeared in the WB pilot for “Aquaman,” as the evil Siren. She’ll also co-star in the upcoming remake of “Red Dawn.””
