According to TV Guide, NBC has picked up a pilot developed by David E. Kelley (“The Practice”) featuring the DC Comics’ character, Wonder Woman.  This would be the second live-action TV adaptation featuring the comics heroine.  The original series starred Lynda Carter, as the title role, and the show ran from 1975-1979.

In 2007, NBC attempted to reboot another popular 70’s series, “The Bionic Woman”, starring Michelle Ryan but the show was canceled in its first year.  Hopefully NBC has better luck with “Wonder Woman”.  Now a bigger task is at hand.

Who should play Wonder Woman?  Thoughts?
