New “Wonder Woman” TV Series Coming

The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog and Deadline are reporting Wonder Woman is returning to television. According to the Heat Vision article, “Warner Bros. Television is developing a modern-day reboot of the classic DC comic book heroine and is lassoing an unlikely talent to potentially write and produce the superhero project: David E. Kelley.” Kelly produced and created such shows as “Boston Legal”, “Picket Fences”, and “Chicago Hope.”

Wonder Woman was last seen in live action in the late 1970s in the form of Lynda Carter. That version still echoes through the minds of viewers with its campy theme song, odd sound effects and the character’s quick-change twirling power. The TV version aired from 1975 to 1979 and remained in syndication for many years.

A film version of “Wonder Woman” has been under development for ten years under the supervision of Joel Silver. As late as last year, the producer said attempts were still being made to draft a script that would meet his satisfaction.What this means for a “Wonder Woman” movie is still unknown, but Warners is expected to announce its slate of DC movies by end of the year.
