NBC’s reworking of the classic Wonder Woman finally has a face for it’s leading lady – but who is it? None of than widely beloved actress Adrianne Palicki of Friday Night Lights!
That’s right! In the new series pilot from David E. Kelley (Harry’s Law), Palicki will play Diana Prince [otherwise known as Wonder Woman], a Los Angeles-based crime fighter who leads a double life as a corporate executive.
The show will be a reinvention of the DC Comics title where Wonder Woman, also known as Diana Prince, is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles, but also a successful corporate executive who is trying to juggle all aspects of her life.
As most fans have already heard, the reworking of Wonder Woman will actually feature three personas: Wonder Woman, Diana Prince and Themyscira Industries C.E.O. Diana Themyscira.
Kelley is writing the pilot and Jeffrey Reiner is directing it for Warner Bros. Television. Palicki will also be in the upcoming Red Dawn remake.
