Supposedly David E. Kelley (yes, that one) is onboard to develop a Wonder Woman show for TV.

As long as they get someone as good as Linda Carter in the lead I'm all for it.

Bridget Regan gets my vote.

I lean towards Taylor Cole or Serinda Swan (sheerly from a visual standpoint).  I just don't get the same feeling about Bridget Regan.  Height-wise, T.Cole is 5' 8.5", S. Swan is 5' 7" and B. Regan is 5' 8", so roughly about the same height.


Taylor Cole:

Here she sort of has an Evangeline Lilly vibe to her from a photo taken for "The Event".

Bridget Regan just looks like too Anglo to me:

I dont think Ive seen Taylor Cole or Serinda Swan in anything. Not familiar with them.


Someone at SHH made this when in defense of his choice of Jamie Alexander....

This is getting shelved as no network decided to pick up a pilot script for it for the upcoming fall season.

NBC has picked this up after all.

The website Bleeding Cool has posted a reaction to a draft of the pilot:

Of course, this may have been just a first draft, and not the actual shooting script. Or it may be a practical joke. I'm kind of hoping for the latter.

I don't know, Bryan.. I read that and was all giddy.   I miss the goofy, down to earth super hero idea.  It's a good mix of something like "No Heroics" with a real superhero.  If they can keep it in that tone, I'm there every week.

We'll see, I guess. This just sounds slightly similar to the late-60s/early-70s revamp in the comics that hardly anyone liked, mixed with a Sex and the City/Ally McBeal vibe that just feels weird. And I think the double-secret identity thing could be needlessly convoluted.


But of course, this is just one description of a draft that may have been rewritten, so who knows?

Sounds terrible to me, but Kelly doesn't make his shows for me anyway.

Adrianne Palicki got cast as Wonder Woman for this TV incarnation.

While she was never on my radar for the role of WW for the TV show, it's not a bad choice.  She's 5' 11" tall, with bolt-on upgrades, and has acted on TV for almost a decade (it seems), and I liked her on Friday Night Lights, and she should have been cast as Supergirl on Smallville in season 3 or 4 (and not that other Kara character).

I think she's potentially a very strong choice.  Not a big name actress, but she's got chops, and was very good in her role on FNL.

If the pilot (still to be filmed) is promising, NBC will find a spot for it on its Fall 2011 schedule.

Assuming it gets picked up by NBC, it will be interesting to see if any of the villains will be on the show, and who will be playing them?

I find it fairly terrible.  Words are escaping my grasp...

Maybe it's just me but I think it looks as good as that costume could look in live action (and much better than the Lynda Carter one).
