Adrianne Palicki is NBC's new Wonder Woman
Warner Bros. Pictures and NBC have traveled to their recent past by choosing a former NBC series star as their new "Wonder Woman." After a recent round of casting choices, the two producers have announced "Friday Night Lights" co-star Adrianne Palicki as the latest to don the outfit for their upcoming new pilot.
With the first episode set to be directed by Jeffrey Reiner---a frequent "Friday Night Lights" director---it gives some cohesion between the incoming new leading lady and the TV helmer. It's also a victory of sorts for Palicki, who was in the running to play the Amazonian heroine back when Warner Bros. Pictures wanted to take on a Justice League movie. David E. Kelley is writing and will executive produce.
The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman – a/k/a Diana Prince – is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.
Oh NBC...you just don't learn do you...
