Despite the failure of the NBC “Wonder Woman” pilot last year, TV producer David E. Kelley believes The CW’s upcoming WW prequel project “Amazon” will have better luck.

Kelley says: “I still believe it’s viable for a television series. I think it’s ripe to do it. We made mistakes with ours. My only regret is we were never given a chance to correct them… I do believe it can work for the CW. They’re smart to try it.” [Source: The Live Feed]

BBC America has acquired the eight-part ensemble ITV British drama series “Broadchurch” starring David Tennant, Olivia Colman, Vicky McClure and Arthur Darvill.

The story explores what happens to a small community when it suddenly becomes the focus of a major murder investigation and is subjected to the full glare of the media spotlight. [Source: Deadline]
