I remember writing a multi-part story in second grade about my magical robot wristwatch. The story was so strange and filled with raw imagination that my mother kept it for ages. Heck, it may still be in an envelope someplace in the bottom of a dresser. Kids have unfiltered and unsullied imaginations, and that imagination is what makes Geek and Sundry’s Written by a Kid so incredible. Actual stories written by actual kids are brought to life visually for our enjoyment.
AICN reports that David E. Kelly’s wonder woman has been ordered to pilot by NBC. David E. Kelly is best known for legal dramas such as Alley McBeal and L.A. Law ( note: that means Los Angeles, not Spanish for “The”). Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the series is about crime fighting and not courtroom shenanigans. According to sources the rights to Wonder Woman were very expensive to acquire, so bringing the character back to series was a huge challenge.
The new series, which is set to start airing in September 2012 is quoted as being
“a reinvention of the iconic D.C. comic in which Wonder Woman — aka Diana Prince — is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.”
For the life of me I can’t seem to find any sort of solid casting information, so that leads me to believe the role has yet to really be cast… my vote is for Julia Voth!
