January 15, 2011 (3:23 am) GMT
Although the reboot project was scrapped earlier this year, the TV writer is optimistic that it would happen next year.

"Ally McBeal" creator David E. Kelley is adamant his "Wonder Woman" reboot will be on the air by next year, despite failing to land a TV deal with his new script earlier this month. Kelley has been working on bringing Wonder Woman back to the small screen for the first time since 's popular portrayal of the lasso-hurling heroine in the 1970s.

He met with TV bosses last week but shelved his project after executives at America's NBC Network refused to make room in their schedule for the show. However, Kelley is positive he will see the scantily-clad superhero on TV in 2012.

He tells the Hollywood Reporter, "I think the likelihood is we'll see it next year. I'm being optimistic but I don't think I'm being unrealistic."
