Wonder Woman TV gig goes to “Friday Night Lights” beauty


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Friday Night Lights” beauty Adrianne Palicki has been selected to play Wonder Woman in a new television series that’s being prepared by TV veteran David E. Kelley (“Ally McBeal,” “The Practice”).

Kelley’s involvement no doubts leads to the show’s main subploit, which will find Wonder Woman juggling a dual life as a superpowered crime fighter and a successful corporate executive trying to balance both identities.

Once upon a time, Wonder Woman was being considered for a feature-length film, a la “The Dark Knight” or even “Superman Returns.” At one point, Joss Whedon even was in contention to direct (if you believed the scuttlebutt), though he moved on to “The Avengers” for Marvel and left this DC Comics hero in limbo. It’s possible Wonder Woman has a better shot as succeeding on the small screen, and it will be interesting to see which direction the pilot take her.

As for the pilot, ComingSoon reports it was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner (“The Event”).
