'Wonder Woman' Finally Finds Home in NBC
Less than a month after it was reported that "Wonder Woman" TV reboot is dead, NBC announced that it's picking up the series from Warner Bros. TV. The network's entertainment president Bob Greenblatt said they have decided to go with the pilot using the script from David E. Kelley.
WB TV had pitched the script to several networks earlier this month but many rejected including the peacock. According to Deadline, NBC "couldn't commit to the type of license fee that the studio was seeking in order to do the show Kelley had envisioned."
But now that Greenblatt is in position and Kelley has successfully delivered "Harry's Law", the executives decide to give it a shot. Back when the project was shelved, Kelley had thought that NBC would be a good home for this. He also said to THR, "I think the likelihood is we'll see it next year. I'm being optimistic but I don't think I'm being unrealistic."
"Wonder Woman" would be 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."
Greenblatt may be taking the risk with this project which has proven difficult to resurrect over the years, but he is also keeping the business running by ordering other pilots such as "Mann's World". It's a drama from Michael Patrick King of "Sex and the City" about the complicated life of celebrity hair stylist Allan Mann. Few days ago, Greenblatt also gave a nod to musical pilot "Smash", which comes from the brain of Steven Spielberg.
