Call her invincible! After a long battle, Wonder Woman will finally be making her way to TV screens: Deadline.com reports that NBC has picked up David E. Kelley's pilot about the Amazing amazon.
As Marquee previously reported, the project had been turned down by several networks earlier in the month, but Kelley remained optimistic.
"The bottom line is, I had a lot of fun writing it, and we're still optimistic that we're gonna do it," he said at the time. "I think everybody's confident that we're gonna see it."
Indeed, NBC has now given the show the go-ahead, and the plot will revolve around Diana Prince and her life in L.A. as vigilante crime fighter Wonder Woman.
"I like to think of it as a smart script and I know [new NBC programming chief Bob Greenblatt] responds to smart material," Kelley told the Hollywood Reporter, adding that his Wonder Woman is a "real complex woman and not just a superhero."
