This is not good…NBC has decided to pass on the revamped version of Wonder Woman. That’s a serious diss! There was that whole outfit fiasco where people were in an uproar because the new ‘Wonder Woman’ costume didn’t matchÂ theÂ original…the show could still be shopped around at another network!
EW has learned that NBC passed onÂ the much buzzed-aboutÂ Wonder Woman pilot from David E. Kelley and Warner Bros. TV.
Kelley had penned a script that updated the comic book classic to have Diana Prince as CEO of a major conglomerate by day andÂ a butt-kicking AmazonÂ (with a fleet of cool planes) by night. Kelleyâ€™s take asked for lots of heart-thumping, contemporary music, and at one point theÂ Boston Legal writer even requested a commercial-free premiere for the pilot if it aired.
NBC isnâ€™t saying for now but scuttlebuttÂ reveals the pilot earned mixed reviews at test screenings. And then there was all the online blow backÂ about the costume â€“ which seemed to de-emphasize the patriotism and play up the comicâ€™s Greek mythology. Ultimately, the wardrobe department went back to the drawing board but that didnâ€™t seem to save the project.
