Adrianne Palicki ("Friday Night Lights") will star in the title role of "Wonder Woman," a new series pilot from David E. Kelley ("Boston Legal," "Ally McBeal," NBC's "Harry's Law").

The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman a/k/a Diana Prince is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.

Kelley and Bill D'Elia ("Boston Legal," "The Practice") are the executive producers. The pilot was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner (NBC's "The Event"). "Wonder Woman" is from David E Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Palicki, who appeared as Tyra Collete in NBC"s acclaimed "Friday Night Lights," will star in the upcoming feature-film remake of Red Dawn. She also starred in the horror film Breaking the Girl and in the recent series "Lone Star."

I'll watch. Surprised it's not on WB after Smallville (except Smallville is in it's last season so I guess that wouldn't work anyway)

How's this:



That material does not allow air movement to her skin, it's just not breathable. So she's going to end up with a nasty rash at the very least. :unsure-1:

I feel like it's gonna cost a lot of money in post production to mute out all the creaking & squeaking that latex is going to make.

Well, apparently this show is dead before it even gets out of the starting gate. NBC declined to pick up the show after viewing the pilot episode:
