Plans For Wonder Woman Movie Become Plans For Wonder Woman TV Show

Posted by October 1, 2010 Comment

David E. Kelley, creator of Ally McBeal and Boston Legal, has been caught in Wonder Woman’s lasso. He’s DC Entertainment’s pick to write and produce a new Wonder Woman TV show. Heat Vision make a good case for Diana working out better on the small screen than the big:

While movies like Daredevil spin-off Elektra, starring Jennifer Garner, bombed on the big screen, the small-screen has been a more than willing home to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, a character which first failed as a movie, and Alias, the spy series which starred Garner.

That’s a nice little pile of evidence… but it’s hardly proof. I’m sure one of you Little Bleeders could be a contrary case just as convincingly. I’ll get you started: The Bionic Woman.

The selection of Kelley can be interpreted in a number of ways, but one thing’s clear: he’s not got a whole load of action-driven projects on his resume.

Let the Wonder Woman casting rumours begin again! I’ll kick them off… how about somebody from Kelley’s ditched pilot Legally Mad? Charity Wakefield, maybe? Seems like a nice girl…
