Now the CW Wants to Take a Shot at Putting Wonder Woman on TV

The network has lassoed former Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg to write up a pilot.



Source: Variety

Remember when David E. Kelley was going to run a Wonder Woman TV show for NBC, and then NBC changed their mind when they saw the pilot?  Good times.  Anyway, Wonder Woman's corporate overlords at Warner Brothers want to give her another shot, and this time it could happen on a network they partially own.  

Variety is reporting that The CW, which has Arrow starting up this fall, and which ran Smallville for approximately seventy-five seasons, wants to go ahead with a Wonder Woman origin series, tentativly entitled Amazon.  They seem to be paying some attention, since they've hired veteran television and oft-times comic writer Allan Heinberg (whom Variety mentions is the writer of Marvel's Young Avengers, but curiously fails to note that he also wrote the Wonder Woman comic for a while) to write the pilot.  It hasn't gotten any further than that yet, but we'll keep an eye on this one as it develops.  

Wonder Woman was last seen on series television in animated form in Bruce Timm's Justice League Unlimited, but more famously she was played by Lynda Carter for three seasons on Wonder Woman in the late 1970's.

They'll probably try and add teen drama with Cassie and Donna. :smt011

Too bad Nadia Bjorlin is going back to Days of Our Lives, cause I still think she'd be good for a Wonder Woman series on the CW. :-D

If "Arrow" is any type of sign... they'll change her name, where she comes from and her look...

I'd have at least a little faith in the project if it wasn't Heinberg.

We've seen his take on Wonder Woman and it just wasn't that good. :smt102

Co-signed.

And PLEASE don't let him handle Donna. That DEFINITELY didn't go well last time.

I mean the guy does write fun things....over at Marvel.

Not sure what exactly happened with WW for him, I just remember the delays and no one being able to fix the book until Gail stepped up. :smt102

Given this is by the CW and they brought in Heinberg, I'm expecting it to end up being Wonder Woman in a Cassie/Donna persona in an OC setting.

Do it. Drive the character further into the ground.

If CW did a version of the current WW book, with Diana and the Greek pantheon, that might be interesting. Though the show would probably ditch the non-human forms they're taking right now.

Yup. They would even try to have Mischa Barton as Diana if anything. I don't see this proposed series flying far at all and will get canned like Birds Of Prey.
