The upcoming Wonder Woman : Adrianne Palicki


In general I'm not interested on business TV shows but when an iconic superhero like Wonder Woman seems to be reused for a TV show I cannot just ignore the information because I grow up with the Linda Carter's Wonder Woman of the 70's and I wonder how the Warner Bros will raise the challenge of a new Wonder Woman. They (the Warner Bros) recently announced that actress Adriannne Palicki won the titular role in David E. Kelly's series pilot for NBC's "Wonder Woman".

First at all the actress : Adriannne Palicki. She's not stranger to the superhero genre because she played the Kryptonian Kara on "Smallville" (Convent, episode 22, saison 3) before Laura Vandervoort stepped in to play the real Supergirl. She also played on the TV movie Aquaman as the evil supervillain Siren. With a height of 1.80 m and a beautiful body she seems a really Amazon. The choice of this "beauté" seems a very good choice.

About the screenwriter and television producer David E. Kelly I have some concerns. Last 10 years, several Kelly's TV projects have been canceled (Snoops, Ally, Girls club, The Brotherhood of Poland: New Hampshire, The Law Firm, The Wedding Bells) and I really don't see a superhero profile on Kelly's creations...

In fact, the series pilot should be an adaptation of the DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman – a.k.a. Diana Prince – is a vigilante crimefighter on the streets of Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.

Some questions should be answered very soon : She'll adopt the new costume that DC created last year for the comic-book Diana Prince ? Will the pilot get picked up for a full-season order ? I just hope that the superhero element should be more important than the modern woman corporate executive profile... I really don't want to see another Ally McBeal with super powers !
