    DC Wonder Woman not coming soon to NBC after all

    The on again off again Wonder Woman news has really bored me to death but it seems now the latest news from Deadline is NBC has stepped up to the plate and ordered a pilot from David E. Kelley. Of all the networks passing on the pilot just a few weeks ago including the struggling NBC it seems a lot of changes are happening now that Comcast has taken over the Peacock and new head honcho Robert Greenblatt is making some bold moves which includes ordering the WW pilot.

    Here's the plot description Deadline has for Wonder Woman, describing it as,

    "a reinvention of the iconic D.C. comic in which Wonder Woman -- aka Diana Prince -- is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life."

    So... by NBC standards, single mother with wacky (most likely gay) neighbors who discover her secret identity.

    According to TVLine's Michael Ausiello McG has is the favorite to direct David E. Kelley's newly greenlit Wonder Woman pilot for NBC and Warner Bros.

    The director has a lot of experience with reboots and powerful women, he directed both Charlie's Angels movies. There have yet to be any meetings on the project, but word is that McG is considered a fronturnner for the job.

    McG is very active as a TV producer with 4 series on the air including, Chuck, Supernatural, Nikita and Human Target, he typically does not direct in TV opting to work in features. His only previous TV directing jobs were the pilots for Chuck and Fastlane, both developed and produced by McG's WBTV-based company.

    This is going to be the worst canonical series or the worst fanfiction series. And I am factoring in Smallville. Which I watched.

    After playing the Wonder Woman story arc in DCUO I'm a lot more interested in a Wonder Woman TV show. Then I read this...

    http://www.avclub.com/articles/david...rpowere,51229/

    When it was announced that David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman had graduated to the pilot stage at NBC, we speculated that the show would find her balancing crime-fighting with the typical TV concerns of a single career-lady, reflecting on a day’s work and the mysteries of love to the gentle strains of adult-contemporary pop. As it turns out, we may not be far off: Bleeding Cool has obtained what it says is a draft of Kelley’s pilot script, and apparently this will indeed be a modern Wonder Woman, one who longs for ex-boyfriend Steve Trevor “like Carrie for Big” on Sex And The City, sings along to Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga songs on the radio, and binges on ice cream during pajama sleepovers with her best gal pal. At one point, Wonder Woman also has a fight scene set to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies,” and a character says the phrase, “You go, girl.” But, you know, in a “serious, non-campy” way. On a positive note, she'll still have those bullet-deflecting bracelets, but of course, they'll just be one more wall she puts up to keep people from seeing the real her, you know?

    I think the fucking Lady Gaga songs will get it cancelled equally fast.

    David Kelley has clearly been out of the tv game for too long and doesnt remember shit.

    Considering he's making the Steve Trevor romance angle a focus of the show it's pretty clear he remembers exactly how he used to write female leads in shows. The only thing WW needs now is a co-ed bathroom and a lesbian pianist singing a song at everyone's favorite bar...oshit
