Wonder Woman TV series back on track

It takes a lot to defeat Wonder Woman! Though Marquee previously reported that plans for a TV reboot starring the Amazing Amazon had been scrapped, David E. Kelley now says the series is back on track.

"The bottom line is, I had a lot of fun writing it, and we're still optimistic that we're gonna do it," Kelley tells New York magazine's Vulture. "We have a script that Warners and DC are very excited about."

Kelley believes the networks took a pass because of bad timing. The show was pitched very late in the pilot-development season, so giving it a thumbs-up now would have required networks to divert a lot of resources at the last minute.

James Franco tuning up for a musical at Yale

He's a movie star, soap actor, book author, Golden Globe nominee, Oscar host, and now James Franco is adding another title to his resume: musical producer.

IvyGate reports that the busy Yale student is currently in the process of putting together a musical-theater production called "James Franco Presents." Auditions will be held January 16 and 17 — though Franco won't be present — and the roles certainly sound interesting. According to the production's description on the Yale Drama Coalition site:

"'James Franco Presents' is the story of a girl dealing with the realities of love and life once she realizes she can’t hide behind the wonderful fantasies of fiction. A comedic drama, this musical incorporates film and live musical theater to tell the story of a cast struggling to write and produce a musical that is grounded in high school realities but with a sci-fi twist. Sex, blood, and surrealism to be expected."

Franco's play is expected to run April 7-9 and 14-16.

Pac-Man coming to life with new reality series

Waka-waka or just wacky? Beloved '80s arcade game Pac-Man is coming to life in a new reality series.

According to Deadline.com, Merv Griffin Entertainment is developing an unscripted show about the pellet-eating yellow blob that was chased through a maze by Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. The series coincides with the 30th anniversary of the iconic video game.

Merv Griffin's president of TV, Roy Bank, describes the upcoming Pac-Man project as a "big, crazy, 'Wipeout'-type event with a lot of energy. The idea we have is to take what Pac-Man is and bring it to life, to bring what is essentially the world's biggest game of tag to television."

The world's biggest game of tag on television? Sounds...interesting. What do you think?
