Thankfully Fox’s Lone Star was canceled in the blink of an eye, otherwise the lovely Adrianne Palicki would have not been available to be the new Wonder Woman for David E. Kelly and NBC. You might remember Palicki from the first couple seasons of one of the best shows to grace the small screen, Friday Night Lights. There is played a bit of a selfish bitch, but a little bit of that spice might be good for the amazon princess turned superhero.
The new series is said to be a serious take on the character where Wonder Woman is a billionaire CEO who moonlights as a vigilante in Los Angeles. Very Batman-ish if you ask me. I just hope they keep her amazon backstory in place and maybe include some other DC Comics heroes into the mix down the line, as Smallville has very successfully done. It would be really cool if they connected the show somehow to Smallville or the new DC film universe with Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern and Henry Cavill’s Superman.
Casting sheets have revealed that the only other familiar character in the series at this point is long time WW love interest Steve Trevor. He is described as an Army vet who now works with the Justice department. We’ll have to wait and see if anyone else (villains perhaps?) from WW’s history makes it into the mix.
