I posted this over on my TV blog, but for those who don’t read it . . . . here it is (again for some).
Producer David E. Kelley, known for shows like “Chicago Hope,” “Boston Legal” and “Ally McBeal” has signed on to produce a new modern take on “Wonder Woman” for the WB.
It would seem that the show will probably fill the gap “Smallville” leaves when it goes off the air after this season.
A movie version of the heroine has been in the works for 10+ years now, with everyone from Angelina Jolie to Lucy Lawless rumored to be up for the role at times.
Who will play her on TV is unknown, or if the show will even make it past the pilot stage. Given all the trouble the movie has had becoming a reality, I won’t hold my breath for the TV show.
Should it make it to TV, it will be a really hard sell. Who could actually play Wonder Woman? How will they make the character their own, when comparisons to Lynda Carter are going to be inevitable.
