The CW Plans "Wonder Woman" Series

The CW, which last year passed on David E. Kelley's proposed television revival of Wonder Woman because of its price tag, is reportedly planning its own take of DC Comics' iconic superheroine.

According to Vulture, the project is being written by Allan Heinberg, whose television credits include "Sex and the City," "The O.C." and "Grey's Anatomy." However, he's probably better known to comics fans as the co-creator of Marvel's "Young Avengers" who helped to relaunch DC's "Wonder Woman" in 2006.

Called simply "Amazon," the series would be an origin story focusing on Wonder Woman as a young superhero. "Think 'Smallville,'" the website writes, "but instead of a 'no tights, no flights' rule, this show might have a 'no bracelets, no crown' mandate." The Warner Bros. Television project is only in the script stage; no pilot has been greenlit.

News of "Amazon" comes more than a year after NBC rejected Kelley's "Wonder Woman" pilot, which starred Adrianne Palicki as a successful corporate executive who fights crime in Los Angeles while trying to balance the elements of her extraordinary life. Announced in October 2010, the revival seemed shaky almost from the start, with Kelley revealing two months later that he hadn’t “necessarily committed” to the project. However, when he did commit, Warner Bros. encountered difficulty finding a home for the pilot, with all the broadcast networks initially passing on "Wonder Woman" before NBC changed course in late January. That was followed by negative reaction to a leaked draft of the script and then the first look at Palicki in a costume.

The CW, a joint venture of DC Comics parent company Warner Bros. and CBS Corporation, was the longtime home of "Smallville," which ended its 10-season run last year. The network will debut "Arrow," based on DC's Green Arrow, Oct. 10.

Aw, BD, you beat me to it. I was just about to post this. Cool

Could be interesting. I'd like to see what they do with (Green) Arrow before they start production on another comic based show.

Yep. Another disposable WB production. Ah well, if it's anything like Smallville, as the article suggests, I'll wait for the film.
