Pilot Scoop: Wonder Woman Adds Knight Hunk

Former Knight Rider star Justin Bruening has joined another reboot for NBC: Wonder Woman.

The David E. Kelley-penned pilot stars Adrienne Palicki as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, who is a successful corporate executive working to balance all the elements of her complicated life.

Bruening will play Steve Trevor, an army vet who now works in the Justice department and a potential love interest for Diana.

In other pilot news, Desperate Housewives alum Mark Deklin has been added to ABC’s dramedy pilot Good Christian Bitches. It stars Leslie Bibb as Amanda, a onetime “mean girl” who returns home to Dallas hoping to get a second chance at winning over her old classmates. Deklin will play a rugged, metrosexual cowboy married to one of the classmates, Cricket (Miriam Shor). Deklin recently co-starred on Lone Star and is recurring on Hawaii Five-0 and Hot in Cleveland.

Lastly, Dexter alum David Ramsey has been cast in the CW pilot Cooper & Stone, about Jenna Cooper (Alex Breckenridge) and Stone (Vanessa Ferlito), two smart female detectives on Chicago’s North Side who are equally adept at discussing fashion, music and pop culture as they are at solving homicides. Ramsey will play Mazzara, a veteran cop who has no patience for rookies but is tight with Stone. He most recently co-starred on NBC’s Outlaw.
