NBC Picks Up David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman'

SOURCE: NBC Picks Up David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman'

The project is described as a reinvention of the iconic D.C. comic in which Wonder Woman -- aka Diana Prince -- is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.

I know most everyone else is cracking wise about how this sounds like.. oh, EVERY SINGLE SHOW David E. Kelley has EVER made with a female protagonist and how we're going to have some skinny-armed waif playing Wonder Woman.

But I have to ask - did anybody else read this and think "So basically they're doing a show absed on the Palmotti & Gray run of Power Girl only using Wonder Woman instead"?


  1. "reinvention of the iconic"
    Iconic = having the qualities of an icon
    Icon = an important, meaningful or even sacred image
    I am angry about this show and I have not even seen it yet. You can't just casually reinvent an icon. Doesn't work that way.

  2. Pretty much my thoughts too. Seems a shame, considering some of the great comics material for WW....

  3. Umm..hi. I just followed the link to here from shanejayell's post on ns_d.
    I just want to say that there was a very apt likeness to Batman aswell in the concept as pointed out by some in the comment sections.

  4. That sounds like it has very little to do with Wonder Woman. I've never pictured Diana as a corporate executive. Being an ambassador is a huge part of her, even more important than being a superhero. (At least in my opinion.)
