TELEVISION: NBC kicks Wonder Woman to the curb
Looks like we won’t get to see David E. Kelley’s take on Wonder Woman, as NBC has decided to pass on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The drama, produced by Warner Bros. TV, is a reinvention of the iconic DC comic in which Wonder Woman (Adrianne Palicki) is a vigilante crime-fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive trying to balance all the elements of her extraordinary life. Joining Palicki is Elizabeth Hurley, Tracie Thoms and Cary Elwes. Jeff Reiner (The Event) directed the pilot.
Part of the reason for the pass is lackluster buzz surrounding the show, which, if you’ve been reading this site for any length of time, you know that translates to utter hatred for the idea, look, and concept of the show from many of the Intardwebz people.
With Wonder Woman and Locke & Key getting let go, I guess we’ll all have to satiate ourselves with another season of Chuck.
