A hot Wonder Woman...could work.
Word came flying in later today that actress Adrianne Palicki has been in cast as Dianna Prince/Wonder Woman in David E. Kelly's Wonder Woman pilot for NBC. The press release describes the pilot as:
"The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman – a.k.a. Diana Prince – is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life."
-Not ridiculously too far from the comics material. Although Wonder Woman has mostly been based in Washington, D.C.(when she's in the US), I don't see her being in Los Angeles as a game-changer. I'm not bothered by Dianna Prince being a corporate executive, either. And from the looks of the shows star, she could pretty much be reading the phone book in the Wonder Woman costume and I'm not really gonna care.
