Super! Wonder Woman Pilot Lands At NBC

Your (Diana) Prince may come after all, comic-book fans.

David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman pilot has landed at NBC, just weeks after the high-profile project appeared to have stalled, Deadline reports.

Earlier this month, all the majors took a pass on the series, due to its being shopped around late in the game plus its presumably big-ticket price tag. But with the NBC-Comcast deal now done, the Peacock’s purse strings grew a bit looser.

Just last week, Kelley said that despite that brief hiccup, he and his team were “optimistic that we’re going to do it,” noting, “We’ve got a script that [Warner Bros. TV] and DC are very excited about.”

Kelley’s take on Wonder Woman presents Diana Prince as an L.A.-based “corporate executive and modern woman” also juggling her side job as a vigilante crimefighter, says Deadline. It wouldn’t be a Wonder Woman story without me asking you to speculate, in Comments, on which lovely lass should be cast as the golden lasso-wielder! Soap siren Nadia Bjorlin? Smallville‘s Erica Durance? My CWPF Charisma Carpenter?

Earlier this week, Kelley’s latest legal dramedy, Harry’s Law, premiered solidly for NBC.
