Adrianne Palicki Talks About The Experience Of Playing Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot will be Wonder Woman in the new sequel to Man of Steel, but the last time anyone saw a Wonder Woman in live action, and the reason this website was created in the first place, was actress Adrianne Palicki.

Palicki played Diana Prince/Wonder Woman/Diana Themiscyra (don’t ask) in the ill-fated Wonder Woman pilot for David E. Kelley in 2011 that did not go beyond the pilot stage. Despite the pilot not hitting the air and getting a critical drubbing from fans who were able to see it, Palicki is upbeat about the experience.

The CW Wonder Woman Project Has A New Writer

The CW has not given up on Wonder Woman.

The WW TV project, which we assume is still called Amazon, is going through the process of redevelopment, this time with another writer, Aron Eli Coleite of Heroes fame.

You can read more details, including some words from The CW’s Mark Pedowitz, here.

Paradise Island Will Have To Wait: No Amazon For Fall 2013

The CW Wonder Woman pilot Amazon has been “rolled into next season,” according to Deadline.

The article does say that Amazon “remains a high priority” for the network, who have had some patience with projects from other development cycles before. And hey — better they take their time with things than to do it when it’s not quite right.

The CW does have some interesting projects lined up including The Tomorrow People. You can read about those at our general TV site, KSiteTV.

UPDATE: THR‘s outlook is a bit rosier, saying the show still has a possibility for Fall 2013, midseason, or Fall 2014. TV Line is also getting more optimistic, saying that their sources tell them an updated script has yet to come in so it’s still “technically a contender.” But as for right now, The CW has picked their 8 pilots…

David E. Kelley Admits Wonder Woman Pilot Mistakes In New Interview

At the recent Television Critics Association press tour, The Hollywood Reporter‘s Lesley Goldberg caught up with David E. Kelley, the writer/executive producer behind the 2011 Wonder Woman TV pilot for NBC, where he admitted that the pilot, as it was, was not perfect.

“We made mistakes with ours,” he said. “My only regret is we were never given a chance to correct them. We had a lot that was right about it and a great cast. In time, we could have fixed what we had done wrong, we just didn’t get that chance.”

He is, however, happy that The CW is giving Wonder Woman another go, possibly, with Amazon. “I’m sad we didn’t get to do it but I do believe it can work for The CW. They’re smart to try it,” he said to the Hollywod Reporter. He also would be willing to try it again, if The CW take does not work. “I would. It’s different for me, it’s a genre that I have a lot to learn about,” he said. “At this point in your life, everybody should do something that they’re scared of; I was a little scared of it, I remain a little scared of it and be happy to wade into the fear again.”
