Two weeks after it seemed nobody wanted it, NBC has announced that it’s picking up “Boston Legal” creator David E. Kelley’s attempt to re-launch “Wonder Woman” on the small screen reports The Live Feed.
Warner Bros. TV pitched Kelley’s script to several networks earlier this month but many rejected it including NBC who “couldn’t commit to the type of license fee that the studio was seeking in order to do the show Kelley had envisioned” according to Deadline.
What changed is Kelley’s new legal drama for the network “Harry’s Law”. The Kathy Bates-led show premiered to a healthy 11 million viewers, giving NBC its biggest non-Olympics audience in the Monday 10pm slot in more than a year.
Now, the executives have decide to give it a shot. Kelley’s take reimagines Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince as a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. who is “also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.”
