GE’s NBC didn’t like David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” project earlier this month, but Comcast’s NBC just ordered it to pilot.
Based on the iconic DC Comics superheroine, Kelley’s potential series has Diana Prince as a costumed crime fighter by night and a successful Los Angeles corporate executive by day. Elements carried over from the comics include Diana's lasso of truth, her bullet-deflecting bracelets and her plane.
Kelley is famous for injecting loads of comedy into all his hourlongs, from “L.A. Law” to “Harry’s Law” – but Entertainment Weekly quotes sources as saying the creator of “Ally McBeal” and “Boston Legal” has crafted a “serious, non-campy” take on the superstrong Amazon princess.
