With major buzz, but also major controversy, surrounding the pilot of NBC’s “Wonder Woman,” it doesn’t come as a big shock that NBC has decided not to run David E. Kelly’s “Wonder Woman” series.
The series was supposed to focus around Wonder Woman’s life in Los Angeles as a crime fighting super hero as well as her life as a CEO of a large corporation. However, after a poor viewing at a network screening that failed to impress, the series was dropped. Many comic fans failed to buy into the “modern” Wonder Woman, played by Adrianne Palicki, instead of the Amazonian warrior, as portrayed in the comic book series. Other fans also complained about Wonder Woman’s costume saying it was too shiny, and looked cheap.
Perhaps the story of “Wonder Woman” would be better received if it were to told in the form of a movie, as so many super hero films are hitting the box office these days. Also, keeping with the traditional story of “Wonder Woman” would better please the comic book fans.
Though “Wonder Woman” won’t become a series, the talk surrounding the TV show did gain publicity and got people talking about the story of “Wonder Woman” again.Tags: Adrianne Palicki, comic book series, David E. Kelly, NBC, Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman series
