Remember when David E. Kelly tried to develop a Wonder Woman TV series for NBC? That didn't turn out too well, and the pilot for the series never even aired. Now the CW is going to give it a try, but this time it sounds like something that will be worth watching.
According to Vulture, Warner Bros. TV and DC Comics have found a new way to successfully bring the legend of Diana of Themyscira back to the small screen in the form of an origin story. I think you're going to like what they want to do with it.
As of right now the series is being developed under the title Amazon and it's being written by Allan Heinberg (Grey's Anatomy, The O.C. and the Young Avengers Comic Book). The series "will focus on Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty. (Think Smallville, but instead of a "no tights, no flights" rule, this show might have a "no bracelets, no crown" mandate.)"
I think this would make for a fantastic adaption of the classic comic book character! As of right now they're only working on developing the script, and no pilot has been ordered or greenlit. This is still in the very early stages of development, but I would love to see the network run with it. The CW is also a perfect place for this kind of series, especially with shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, Arrow, and Xena: Warrior Princess under their belt.
As for the Wonder Woman movie, the last thing we heard was that writer Michael Goldenberg (Green Lantern) was developing it. I'm sure it will get made one day, but I doubt it will happen before we see the Justice League movie.
What do you think of the concept behind this potential new Wonder Woman TV series?
