The folks over at The Vulture claim to have a source that says that The CW (the synergistic sister to DC Entertainment and the network of Smallville, Birds of Prey, and Arrow) have tapped Allan (Damn You) Heinberg to develop the pilot script for a Wonder Woman origins series–presumably similar to Smallville–entitled Amazon.
One of these days Wonder Woman is going to make it to one of the screen–either big or small. They keep trying! It’s bound to happen! Big names like Joel Silver and Joss Whedon tried to get a film off the ground to no avail. More recently, when famed TV producer David E. Kelley failed to get NBC to pick up his Wonder Woman series (starring Adrianne Palicki, above, and whose pilot I quite enjoyed), he managed to have “Wonder Woman” appear in an episode of his now canceled series Harry’s Law.
So now the action shifts to The CW, home of all of the most recent live action TV shows starring DC Comics characters. Will it actually happen this time? Who knows? It’s way too early to guess at this point. They are just reportedly developing a script, there isn’t even a pilot order yet, let alone a series order.
