Adrianne Palicki Cast As “Wonder Woman”

Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights,” “Red Dawn”) is set to slip into the red and blue corset for the title role in the new TV series based on the “Wonder Woman” comic.

David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal,” “Ally McBeal,” “Harry’s Law”) scripted the pilot and will executive produce the series about Diana Prince, a successful Los Angeles corporate executive and modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life with her job moonlighting as a vigilante crime fighter.

Jeffrey Reiner (NBC’s “The Event”) directs the pilot while Bill D’Elia (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”) will also produce with Kelley.
