it may not even get made into a TV show. many pilots don't.

And even if it gets picked up, it could be canceled within a few episodes, if the ratings aren't high enough.

Some script details from Bleeding Cool (doesn't sound good):

■There’s a Myndi Mayer, herein portrayed as Diana’s BFF.
■There’s a scene with comics character Etta Candy, a role that’s pretty much written like a job offer to Melissa McCarthy.
■Long ago, government man Steve Trevor crashed onto Wonder Woman’s island and brought her back to New York, but now they’ve split up. She still loves him, though, and it’s obvious that their relationship is going to be a focus.
■Diana might not have an invisible jet (if she did, I didn’t see it) but she has a whole rainbow’s worth of over coloured aircraft.
■She has the lasso, and those bracelets with which she deflects bullets.
■Her nemesis is Veronica Cale, who in this continuity is an evil scientist and rival businesswoman with a secret, nefarious plan that you’ll probably guess ahead of time.
But there’s a lot that’s different too. As well as her Diana Prince alter ego (the Clark Kent disguise that’s achieved by putting her hair up, wearing glasses and cutting back on the make-up) Wonder Woman also has a third guise and a day job as Diana Themyscyra, the head of Themiscyra industries. While little Ms. Prince is a disguise, it is well known in this world that Ms. T and Wonder W are the same – think Tony Stark and Iron Man from the end of their first film on.

There’s a CSI-ish group of science-nerd 20-somethings living in her basement that dance to Kanye West and will doubtlessly help Diana solve any number of crimes in further episodes.

But who is she? Like, you know, emotionally?

Well, this Wonder Woman:

■Identifies with ET the Extra Terrestrial when his movie comes on TV.
■Really loves planes. Like really.
■Pines for Steve like Carrie for Big.
■Wants to belong and be “among” people, not just “with” them.
■Sings along to the radio in multiple scenes – but nothing with a hairbrush in front of the mirror just yet.
■Doesn’t like being “marketed, commercialized, merchandised”, though she is – there’s a joke about Wonder Woman tie-in dolls having their costumes redesigned that seems to reference the recent makeover for the comics.
■When she’s Diana Prince she’s a mousey Miley Stewart, when she’s Diana Themiscyra she’s the Hanna Montana of businesswomen, and when she’s Wonder Woman she’s Wonder Woman – which is precisely twice in the whole episode.
■Is a capitalist.
■Puts on her PJs for an ice-cream filled sleepover with best friend Myndi.

I'm always in the minority on these things, so my opinion is worth nada. Still, I think this could potentially be fun. Just don't make Diana into a woman dependent on Steve or any other guy, and I think you're good.

I'm cautiously optimistic, we'll say.

This makes me wonder if they want to court Disney's help with this

Oops, Disney's thrown in with the Marvel-ous competition, too late

The thing that kills it for me is that it's a Wonder Woman story that struggles to pass the Bechdel test. I mean, come on.

If she doesn't dance around in front of a mirror or around a table while holding a hairbrush as a microphone then I am out!

I'll wait until there's some footage to see - its easy, IMO, to get a distorted picture of things from breakdowns...I'm not enthusiastic about what I've heard but I'm willing to let the previews sway me.

It looks like Kelley actually read George Perez and Greg Rucka WW comics at least. given his previous shows, I was kind of hoping for a William Shatner as Zeus guest appearance though.
 
I love it when a plan comes together in the Multiverse!

So...the interwebs say that this is the same person who played the naked fake-Supergirl in that one episode of Smallville. Oh, and, hey - she was apparently in that Aquaman pilot that didn't get picked up. ...Better luck this time?

She also did an amazign job on the tv show Friday Night Lights. The director of the pilot has worked with her before on that. Theres some hope. And there are definitely worse choices.

I'm pretty sure this project will make it onto the fall lineup for NBC. David E. Kelly is considered a reliable name in TV and NBC is desperate for somethign that will attract viewers...and I don't think they have a superhero company to fall back on like the CW with the WB or Marvel with ABC, so its WonderWoman or more new superheroes like The Cape for them. And given how many superhero movies are coming out this summer the studios are probably goign to want to continue and bank on the superhero popularity in the fall. Not to mention with Smallville ending there is a opening for a 'established superhero origins' show.
