NBC Picks Up David E. Kelly's Wonder Woman Pilot
« on: January 22, 2011, 11:04:13 AM »
The news of NBC picking up David E. Kelly's Wonder Woman project is across the net.  She's going to be a crime fighter in LA and a corporate executive.  This project has been on and off for some time but the pilot should be made.  NBC picked it up in part due to his other show for them Harry's Law. 

NBC is finally under new management perhaps things can turn around. 

Maybe this will last more than Bionic Woman did (8 eps).  There just might be a couple of new shows to check out next fall.
 
Who would you like to see as Wonder Woman?  My picks, Alyssa Milano, Michelle Ryan, Vanessa Hudgens, Olivia Wilde, Olivia Munn or Morenna Barracian.   

Bring back Lynda Carter but not Cathy Lee Crosby.

A corporate executive? Dear Lord, does this sound terrible! Why even call it Wonder Woman? What the heck does it have to do with a mystical super-powered amazon who battles evil? I wish these people would get a clue and realize that you don't change something that has worked for 70 years! If you want to make a show about a female crime fighter who is also a corporate executive, fine. Just don't call it Wonder Woman, because that ain't her.

A few fans have pointed out that in the current DC storyline Power Girl runs a company.

We will have to wait and see how it does.

Adrianne Palicki Is NBC's Wonder Woman

By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Wednesday February 16, 2011 (*at*) 5:30pm PST


 
After her standout performance on Fox's short-lived drama Lone Star, there was a lot of talk about Adrianne Palicki's star potential. She is on her way to prove it by landing one of the most iconic TV roles, that of Wonder Woman. Friday Night Lights alumna Palicki has been tapped for the title role in NBC's Wonder Woman pilot, David E. Kelley's reimagening of the iconic D.C. comic. In the reboot, from Warner Bros. TV, Wonder Woman/Diana Prince (Palicki) 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. Kelley is executive producing the project with long-time collaborator Bill D'Elia. Palicki won the role of Wonder Woman in a decisive manner; she was the only actress invited to test for it. Wonder Woman reunites Palicki with the pilot's director Jeff Reiner who previously served as director/co-executive producer on Friday Night Lights for the series' early run on NBC. Palicki, repped by UTA and Anonymous Content, next stars in the feature remake of Dawn.

The way I see it, it's all about perspective . . . the Lynda Carter series was, while a fairly faithful translation of the Golden Age WW, pretty broad camp IMO and not (in my estimation) appealing to a very mature audience. Try that same exact treatment today and it would go over like a skunk at a garden party.

I'm not saying a dramatic modernization of WW is going to be very well received either. I think the character, besides being nice eye candy, is pretty much an albatross.

Adrianne Palicki?  I'm not seeing that at all, I just don't see Wonder Woman!?  I was looking for a picture that might show me the concept but it seems in just about every picture ever taken of her she is a blonde.

I'll be stuck checking this out no matter what since Jo is really into Wonder Woman!  Though she is already fond of Linda Carter in the role so I don't know if Adrianne is gonna live up for her?!

Had not really thought on this until now, but the Smallville versus of Clark/ Superman was a successful reboot -- BUT that is Superman with a history rich in dynamic characters from which to draw storlines. I've never really been a reader of WW, but did watch the series. I've a feeling that this may go the way of "Birds of Prey" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0312098/

I'll watch it strictly for the "jiggle factor" but I'd bet that I'm not their targeted audience.

There are a number of sites which have reviewed the script for the pilot.   It's kind of a mixed bag.  It's kind of like Wonder Woman in many ways but it's also different in others.  She rocks out to pop music and wines about men while eating ice cream.   

Tantin Phoenix's audition tape is available online.  I haven't seen it.

We'll know in May if NBC picks this up as a series.  The pilot starts filming in LA on March 15.

Filming starts today in LA.  They will be filming at 555 s Flower street.  I expect pictures soon.

There aren't many fun shows on TV anymore.  I would like to see a fun superhero series.  I doubt NBC can do it but I hope I'm wrong.

The 1st picture of the new costume has been released. Its not a bad take on it.  The suit looks more like the current one in the comics but it's not an exact copy.  I would have given her red boots but that's just me.  It's certainly bright and colorful.

Not terrible; it certainly could have been worse. But I do wish they would have gotten an athletic looking actress. Those pencil thin arms do not cry out 'amazon warrior' to me. But that's the typical Hollywood look nowadays -stick thin with no hips and enormous boobs.

Not as disastrous as it could have been!  I don't understand what the deal is with everyone wanting her beefed up?  Wonder Woman was never some huge "Chyna" looking woman?!  Last time I checked Linda Carter wasn't built like Arnold Schwarzenegger so why does the new Wonder Woman have to be some big brute?!

Oh no, I would NOT want to see a Chyna-sized woman! But just someone who looks like they could actually be a warrior/athlete, and not a skinny model. Look at the way Alex Ross draws Wonder Woman -



Beautiful but strong. Really, I wish they'd made a Wonder Woman movie years ago and cast Lucy Lawless in the role. She looked perfect.

Love that sketch!  And Lucy Lawless would have been awesome!
