Wonder Woman TV Series Greenlit by NBC

Wonder Woman LogoAfter a couple of months of “will they, won’t they,” David E. Kelley’s much shopped-around pitch for a Wonder Woman television series has finally been picked up by NBC.  The news comes after last week’s announcement that the project was most likely dead after being turned down by many studios.  Kelley, at the time, reasoned that he had not yet given up hope on the project—and behold, another pitch to NBC proved to be the right one.  Deadline Hollywood has the whole story.

My own thoughts on the news?  As a Wonder Woman fan, I’m a little wary.  Well, I was wary to begin with—then I read this:  “The project is described as a reinvention of the iconic DC 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 think I really only need one word here:
