Wonder Woman TV Series on NBC?

A while back we reported that there was a new WW TV series from David E. Kelley in the works.

Well according to Entertainment Weekly the series may have found a new home at NBC.


'Wonder Woman' project finds a home at NBC
by Lynette Rice

The ol’ girl may fly this fall after all: NBC has picked up the Wonder Woman pilot from David E. Kelley. Ironically, NBC was the final network to pass on bringing back the superhero over a week ago, but that was before the new regime was officially in place in light of the impending Comcast takeover. Robert Greenblatt is now spearheading primetime as chairman. (On Thursday, head of programming Angela Bromstad announced she was leaving).

The pilot’s cost may not be a concern to Greenblatt, the wunderkind who revitalized Showtime with critical faves like Dexter and Weeds. One factor that seemed to have sunk the Wonder Woman project the first time around was the price of rebooting the series, with the studio requiring a rich license fee to bring the iconic character back to life. But then, NBC has been down this road before: It rebooted Bionic Woman. Kelley’s take incorporated the superhero’s signature lasso, cuffs, and plane in the script, and insiders said it was a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics character. For years, various writers and producers (including Joss Whedon) have tried to bring back Wonder Woman, but the character has proved difficult to resurrect.

Kelley is already executive producing Harry’s Law for NBC, the new drama starring Kathy Bates. The pilot, like all the others ordered by NBC during the current development season, will have to pass the final smell test this spring before its ordered to series in May.


Hopefully we will get to see this soon.

I have faith in DEK as a writer, but watching his shows you realize he has great ideas for 2-3 seasons and then his shows start to fall apart.

Travis Charest

Found this one today from Travis Charest.  Very interesting image.

I like it.  Certainly more warrior and amazon than some depictions, but very good.  The minimal use of color really makes her blue eyes and red star stand out.

It seems the idea of having a Wonder Woman Wednesday is catching on.  HeroPress and The Happy Whisk each offering their own unique takes on the Amazon Princess.

HeroPress offers up a cool (or is it hot?) picture of  WW cosplay.

Live Action Wonder Woman Suggestion: Carie Small

I have not done one of these for a while...

I have no idea if she can act, but Carie Small, #17 for the Tampa Breeze (Lingerie Football League) has certainly got the Wonder Woman look, and she's a bit of a Star Wars geek. Here is her Twitter description:

Athlete. Nerd. Possibilitarian. Survivor. I ♥ microbrews, history, science, Star Wars, mountains, music & lipgloss. I'm scared of ducks.

She is quite the hard chick too. On her Facebook you can see pictures of her ankle injury, which the wife (a P.A. formerly in orthopedics) described as a "fracture-dislocation" - these are not for the weak stomached.
