Variety: "Wonder Woman Pilot Deserves a Second Look"

Interesting article from Variety on the cancellation of the "Wonder Woman" series. [link]

"What Kelley did with the pilot, rather shrewdly, was completely avoid the whole traditional superhero origin story. Instead, he begins in a world where there's somebody known as Wonder Woman -- a widely known vigilante hero -- who supports her crime-busting endeavors through merchandising deals, including an action figure. The business is run for her by a character played by Cary Elwes, who keeps reminding her that if she wants to thwart evil-doers, she has to sell dolls, too."

That could have worked. Being barred from Themriscyra, there is a question to how does Diana support herself? Certainly that secretarial job for the Air Force wasn't going to make paying bills a non-issue.
