New Wonder Woman TV
The pilot for a new Wonder Woman TV series is being made for NBC and is being executive produced by David E. Kelley. Adrianne Palicki plays the character as Wonder Woman, with Tracie Thomas playing alter-ego Diana’s assistant, Etta. Elizabeth Hurley will guest as villain Veronica Cale. Others in the cast include Cary Elwes and Pablo Pascal.
The pilot is currently being shot in Los Angeles and production will continue at least through the end of the month. Once the network sees the pilot, executives will decide whether to move ahead with it as a series. Unless it’s a disaster, it’s hard to imagine that the ratings-challenged network would pass on a project that’s getting so much early interest.
