We heard it might be the case yesterday but now it’s official, Wonder Woman will not be a series on NBC.



NBC held more upfronts today and Entertainment Weekly has learned the network passed on David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman pilot. A relief to some for sure but for a bummer for others who were looking forward to seeing a live-action Amazon Princess again. The pilot starred Adrianne Palicki as Diana, Elizabeth Hurley and Cary Elwes.

EW says there’s no official reason why the show was passed over but that “scuttlebutt reveals the pilot earned mixed reviews at test screenings. And then there was all the online blow back about the costume – which seemed to de-emphasize the patriotism and play up the comic’s Greek mythology. Ultimately, the wardrobe department went back to the drawing board but that didn’t seem to save the project.”

In lieu of the superhero adaptation, NBC has picked up The Playboy Club, Awake, Grimm, Whitney, Up All Night, Smash and Prime Suspect.

Are you upset or happy the show did not get picked up for a series? Would you still like to see Wonder Woman in live action? Perhaps a movie is in the cards after all.

But surely not in the way it was being presented? With that situation? With that plot? Wonder Woman as a vigilante CEO, running across the tops of cars like John McClane?
