Wonder Woman TV Show On NBC A Go!
EW.com reports that NBC has green lit the Wonder Woman pilot from David E. Kelley.
Word spread Wonder Woman wasn't picked up by anyone because of the Marvel TV projects over at ABC - and additional costs associated with licensing and rebooting.
However, all that seemed to changed with Robert Greenblatt - as he now is in control of NBC primetime. Apparently, Greenblatt is not overly concerned with the cost. Greenblatt was responsible for the Showtime series Dexter and Weeds - all hits with the critics.
"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."
According to Deadline.com in regards to David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman:
The project is described as a reinvention of the iconic D.C. comic in which Wonder Woman -- aka Diana Prince -- is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.
David E. Kelley is currently executive producing Harry’s Law for NBC, starring Kathy Bates.
So, who should play Princess Diana - and which costume will she be wearing?!
