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.”

Spoilers: What Actresses Will Be Doing In The Amazon Test Scenes

So we’ve seen casting breakdowns, we’ve heard that “Iris” is indeed “Diana,” but you want some more info on The CW and Warner Bros.’ proposed Wonder Woman project Amazon, right?

We’ve gotten a hold of a casting side that reveals that two test scenes for Diana — labeled here as “Iris” — mostly involves her and a pilot who has a mechanical failure that puts him on her island, named “Pete”… though we know that is really code for “Steve Trevor.”

In the first scene — which may or may not be part of the actual pilot, should it even be filmed… Steve Trevor has landed, and his hands and feet are cuffed by a chair as Diana tries to figure out his intentions. She notices he has a weapon, and accuses him of being a terrorist, or even a diversion or harbinger of an invasion of men.

In another scene, Diana and Steve are at a diner, we assume in Man’s World, and are a lot more friendly. There, Diana has her first taste of ice cream, in a very cute sequence.

If anything, this information should probably confirm that there is a Diana/Steve dynamic at the heart of this project as well as the fish-out-of-water elements we’ve heard of so far. It might also be safe to assume that the studio might be looking for “Steve Trevor” and chemistry with the lead actress while they’re at it. Stay tuned…

Yes, TV Amazon’s Name Is “Diana”

Looks like we don’t have to worry about “Iris.” DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns has confirmed that if Amazon should happen, it will indeed be Diana.

Here was his Tweet from this morning:

“If a WW show happens her name is of course DIANA. Codenames (like IRIS) are used in casting a lot to try and avoid speculation.”

That speculation happened anyway, apparently. But now we can breathe a sigh of relief and be excited by what is otherwise and hopefully a great concept…
