David E Kelley’s Wonder Woman Lives?

Posted on 14 January 2011 by Christian

The veteran showrunner is optimistic that his vision for a Wonder Woman tv series will still happen, despite the pretty major setback reported on this week…

Even though broadcast networks passed on his script this week David E Kelley still sounds pretty sure Wonder Woman will make it to our tv screens next year..

“I think the likelihood is we’ll see it next year, I’m being optimistic but I don’t think I’m being unrealistic.”

Kelley said that he was going to bring the project back to NBC, who reportedly passed first time around. But he maintains that the script being “rolled out very late in the game” may have had something to do with this.

He(Kelley) said that the network(ABC), premiering his new legal drama Harry’s Law on Monday, which he was promoting at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, would be a “good home for it” under incoming programming chief Robert Greenblatt.

“I like to think of it as a smart script and I know he responds to smart material,” Kelley said Thursday of his vision in which Wonder Woman would be explored as a “real complex woman and not just a superhero.”
Kelley also mentioned that it’s a “possibility” Wonder Woman could land at cable.

What do you think? Is there still a chance we will see Princess Diana grace our screens, or is this just wishful thinking on Kelley’s part? Many fans actually sounded relieved that a tv show wasn’t on the cards anymore, under the impression that it might make DC Entertainment and WB wake up to the fact that its a movie that the majority want to see. Of course we could always have both, but if it has to be one of the other, I’m going with the bigger screen.
