When NBC announced they had picked up David E Kelly’s Wonder Woman script for a TV show it came at a bit of a surprise and left fans wondering who could play the most iconic female role in DC comics.
The title role has gone to Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights TV Show) who looks to be an amazing choice for the TV adaptation.
The official press release as follows.
The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman — a.k.a. Diana Prince — is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life. Kelley and Bill D’Elia (Boston Legal, The Practice) are the executive producers. The pilot was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner (NBC’s The Event). Wonder Woman is from David E. Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Thanks to the people behind Smallville and Arrow we might have another chance of getting a Wonder Woman TV series which will be based arround her origin as an Amazon.
Thanks to EW.com we have the first look at Adrianne Palicki in the full Wonder Woman costume.
The chance of a Wonder Woman movie is slim to none for at least a decade but we are one step closer with model slash actress Elizabeth Hurley joining the cast for the pilot.
