David E. Kelley’s pilot for “Wonder Woman” failed to find a place on NBC’s schedule last year, but that hasn’t discouraged The CW from developing its own series about the Princess of Thymescera, according to Vulture.
While Kelley’s version of the heroine was set after she’d already spent a lot of time in “man’s world” -- and ditched romantic interest Steve Trevor, “Amazon” (like the old Lynda Carter series) would apparently start around the time she leaves her all-female island home for the United States.
Vulture reports the proposed series (a new pilot still hasn’t been greenlit for production) seems to be taking the “Smallvlle” route and will make do without the classic Wonder Woman apparel.
Allan Heinberg (“Party of Five,” “Sex and the City,” “Gilmore Girls,” “The O.C.” “Grey's Anatomy”) is penning the new pilot script.
