Wonder Woman heading to NBC

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."

    The pilot has been already made and bought by NBC. I;ve already seen a photo of the actress and is none of the ones mentioned. For the show to succed they need a good time slot and not make it campy but close to the writings of DC Comics.

    Why can't Wonder Woman be just that? Why ca'nt she keep her iconic suit and origins. NBC needs to stop following the trend of remaking and destroying old ideas, and maybe concentrate on giving Wonder Woman fans the amazon we already love? They are ruining the charactor!

    To all the naysayers, I'm a little curious as to what the impetus is to blast this show before it even gets going. Has our TV pallete become so unresponsive with tripe like the Jersey Shore blowing up the ratings that a program like this can't even get a chance? Certainly there are obstacles to face when putting on such a show. Making a show based in a fantasy world of superheroes believable and accessible has always been the challenge of such programs. Heroes did it right in its first season. The Cape... I'm still not sure about. The tone just seems a bit off for me on it. But I'll keep watching it because at the very least, it's not the Jersey Shore.

    The challenge of the show is to make it accessible to both your die hard geeks and still break into your mainstream audience which, judging from the tone of most of these comments, isn't going to be easy. But I find all this pre-show denouncement pretty much a waste of time. The show may work, it may not. We'll just have to see.

    Wow, what a horrible idea. Joss Whedon turned down the idea and even he was interested originally.
    The concept of Wonder Woman was made during or shortly after WW2 and was magnified by the ERA movements. In short, nobody will watch it since there is no real story to portray. What...she's some sort of Amazon woman fighting for the American way of life with her stars-n-stripes outfit? Granted, Linda Carter looked quite yummy in that tacky getup but still...nobody will watch it. She's an outdated story and quite frankly, so are most of these other superhero movies. I mean really...Green Lantern? He was the guy who went to get the real superheros coffee back in the late 70's / early 80's on the superfriends hour saturday mornings.
    The story would probably sell better on the Womans Psycho Network...I mean Lifetime

    The show has potential. It is on the wrong network to be a campy farce, so that's probably out (which may be a good thing). As with everything on television, it is all about the writing. If they can bring this iconic strong female lead to life(btw complicated doesn't have to mean timid, weak, and self doubting) in a manner that is interesting, then it is worth watching. What will be more interesting is how the cast of characters surrounding her are developed. Consider Smallville. Who the heck is "Chloe" in the comics? No one, but she became one of the more compelling characters.

    Shows like Buffy, Xena, and their various spinoffs did well despite their campy and because of their strong characters. Wonder Woman can work – it's all about the execution.

    I find this to be very disturbing. "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."

    First of all Wonder Woman does not live in LA, she lives in Washington DC. Second, she is not a vigilante crime fighter, she is superhero who works with the authorities.

    I also find the comment by David E. Kelley to be equally disturbing "real complex woman and not just a superhero." No she isn't. Wonder Woman is a pretty basic superhero and icon and that's the point.

    David E. Kelley is a very talented television creator and producer but this is the man who gave us Ally McBeal. Combined with the above I fear the worst. Oh well, worse things have happened.

    The show should be set in WWII and move along with the decades from season to season (like Mad Men)... or if it's set in modern day, then in Gateway City like in the comics with potential guest heroes...
    Superman, Batman, Flash, etc....(or Booster Gold, Blue Beetle).

    Before Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter was an unknown so I think that casting ought to stick with that. The only one that comes to mind for me might be Gina Carano. She isn't well known because she doesn't have the diva/publicity gene that seems present in all of today's starlets.

    I'd really like to know why CW didn't pick this up. Come on people, Wonder Woman is a DC Comics character, DC Comics is owned by Warner Bros., Warner Bros and CBS are the same company in the form of CW. So why is Warner Bros and CBS not carrying their own character? Besides, with Smallville ending this season it seems like Wonder Woman would be the perfect replacement. Plus I think everyone here is agreeing on the same thing, NBC is going to drive this show into the ground. They keep trying to remake old TV shows and kill them off in less than a season. This easily needs to go to CW or SyFy. Oh wait, isn't SyFy now owned by NBC? Well, crap!!!

      Wonder Woman has been away too long to bring her back as something new. She should have her suit, powers, and origins in tact. You can revamp Superman and Batman, because they have already been done to death.

    While I would like to say I think this will be a great opportunity for NBC to boost ratings, I can't actually say that. Kelley is talented but my gut tells me that this will not be received well. And I don't think the casting of some eye-candy to play Wonder Woman will help. The issues already plaguing the (supposed) upcoming movie are witness to that. Just about every hollywood hottie under the age of 40 (and a couple over 40) has been rumored to be offered the lead role of the Amazing Amazon. Superhero stories only succeed when there is an actual story to be told. When there is a connection that forms between the superhero and the audience. Without this the genre inevitably fails. In closing, let me make a request of whoever will be casting this NBC effort: I beg of you do not even for a second consider Kim Kardashian. Or Jennifer Love Hewitt. If this were fifteen years ago, then Catherine Zeta-Jones or Lucy Lawless would have been genius. Both are now too old for the part. Wonder Woman is a woman in her late twenties, early thirties at the oldest.

      The Megan Fox casting rumor was just that, a rumor. They never got to the casting stage with the potential Wonder Woman Film. Joss Whedon was attached to write and direct for a while but that fell through and they never really got it going again. Now Joss is doing the Avengers film and they decided that Wonder Woman would play better as a TV series a la Smallville. I'm surprised they didn't put it on the CW.

      Heroes??? That show sucked. Most of today's TV programming sucks. Lost? Survivor? Dancing with the Stars???
      Reality TV is garbage. Why not give this a shot, would be at least a breath of fresh air from the reality garbage. Lynda Carter made the last Wonder Woman watchable, Kelley is a decent writer if the casting is done properly the show might ahve a shot. Megan Fox would be a fail, Wonder Woman did not have tatoo's. Amazonians believed the body was a temple so body art and piercings would not work. Of course they can hide most of that with today's gimmciktry. Elisha Dushku, Jennifer Love-Hewitt are decent choices. Fans of this would be most of those who watched smallville, lois and clark, read DC comics depending on the casting young teenage boys. Thi could become a "must" see when compared to what else is on.

      @TWM – I wouldn't say that the tattoos are what puts Megan Fox out of the running. Its the inability to act her way out of a paper bag. Oh, she's super hot, don't get me wrong, I just don't think she can hold up an entire series. Plus, if you want to get technical on Amazonians, the real ones cut off a boob so they could shoot better – should we do that for the tv show? Historically speaking, its no different than the tattoo issue.

    The setting of the show in LA is the first nail in the coffin. The casting of Wonder Woman will be the final one. To use a common Southern saying...I can guaran-damm-tee you they will cast someone completely wrong for the part.

    It's David E. Kelley folks – they guy who brought us Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, LA Law, and Picket Fences – it SHOULD be pretty good.

      Wow. I just don't know what to say to a person that thought all those shows were great. Really? LA Law? Picket Fences? NOT Wonder Woman's style.

      Boston Legal is occasionally amusing. The rest of that list is good enough for me to order a PASS....

    Wouldn't it be cool if they got some 300lb behemoth to play wonder woman? Well, I am not going to watch this stupid show but I still think it would be cool to have a 300lb wonder woman......but I still wouldn't watch it.

    As long as Megan Fox doesn't play her.

    Suggestions for the person to play her

    Eliza Dushku
    Jessica Alba
    Lucy Lawless
    Tsianina Joelson

      All of those are the most TERRIBLE choices to play wonder woman i have ever heard of. maybe you should read a comic book.

      Jessica Alba would be my choice! Angelina Jolie would also be high on my list.

      While I adore the characters that Eliza & Jessica play, they're too young & skinny to play the Amazon that is Wonder Woman. But someone of the stature of Lucy would be perfect – and cheaper (wouldn't have to put a shorter actress on a crate to make her appear taller than the men around her). Picking Lucy wouldn't be a bad idea, but I'm not sure how the American publc would take to an Aussie playing an American icon.

      Good luck! It's unlikely any of those people would play on a network television show of doubtful quality.

      Tsianina Joelson!!! I used to love her on XENA and she would be an awesome choice. However I think Dukshu will get it. She has the name. I have some hope for this. Hopefully they will make it modern and fresh and will include alot of the characters for the DC universe.

      I think Sarah Lancaster, from the show Chuck would be awesome for this role.

      A talented unknown would be best. There isn't an actress working at thwe moment that fits what Wonder Woman should be.

    So glad that I was around when Lynda Carter played her in the '70's, that was the role she was born to play. Even with the most outlandish plots, she still made the show worth watching. The new version will need to ensure that its lead is just as appealing.

    The original DC comics verion Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, had an apartment in Greenwich Village and was a resident of NYC.

    What's she doing in LA in that pilot? That's the wrong coast for a new series– totally.

    Who is coming up with the programming over there? This is not a great idea. My 12 year old niece has better ideas for shows than this.

      If that's the case, maybe your 12 year old should've sent in some ideas.

    Seriously? NBC is this desperate? The show wont last half a season. Sorry, but it's true.

      The core demographic will be 18-45 and let's be honest, they're not gonna watch a show about some woman with powers, especially on a non cable show where there wont be much skin. Good Luck to NBC though, it would seem their streak of being number 4 is bound to continue. Gin Gin.

      It MIGHT work on a Friday night. If the woman playing Wonder Woman is super hot. Which I'm sure she will be. Unfortunately, I'm also sure that she won't be a good actress...

      If Smallville can make it to 10 seasons, so can this show.

      I wish it the best of luck. Finally Wonder Woman gets the live action treatment in what seems like forever.
