Wonder Woman gets a pilot!


NBC have decided to say yes to the Wonder Woman pilot that was being shunned by all the networks recently. Even NBC had originally said no!

The new head of NBC, Bob Greenblatt, is credited with revitalising Showtime and isn't afraid of sinking some money into projects he believes will help the network.

The pitch that was being shopped around is reportedly as follows:

The project is described as a reinvention of the iconic D.C. 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 wonder if she'll don the Diana Prince outfit from the comics?

This Wonder Woman fangirl is a happy critter right now :D

  1. Wonder woman is the one of the main DC franchises which I just never bought into - I'd be interested to see how they make it relavent without falling into the natural TV cliche which would be "Sex and the city with an invisible plane".

  2. I really hope that it doesn't become SitC with an invisible plane *shudder*

    I think it will depend a lot on what the target demographic is for the show (age range, new audience, comic fans, etc) and what other DC properties, if any, may be included (Donna Troy, Cassie Sandsmark, etc).

    Diana is an interesting character when written well, so I just hope that great writers get the chance to work on the project :)
