The internet exploded this morning with information so amazing, it can simply be described as “epic”. One of our favorite nerds, Felicia Day has been hinting at a #secretproject for weeks now, but details have been scant at best. Well this morning, bright and early, the bomb was dropped. Felicia Day was approached by Bioware to create a web-series based on their Dragon Age franchise! This was something I wasn’t aware that I really wanted until it actually existed, sort of like sweet and spicy Doritos (soooo good)
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!
