How do you take a classic TV and destroy it? There’s a good chance DC Comic is about to let us know, announcing plans to reboot the Wonder Woman franchise by handing it over to David E. Kelley, the guy behind “Alley McBeal” , “Boston Legal” and “The Practice.”
Because if anything shouts Wonder Woman, it’s definitely a guy who writes legal and legal comedy based programs.
The slightly good news that comes from this is that the program isn’t actually in development, rather Kelley is working to hash out plans for what could become a series.
Hopefully if the new treatments for the series total suck DC Comic may will pull the plug on the series and maybe produce a movie.
Wonder Woman recently underwent a 21st century make over, giving her more appeal to a larger audience, but even fans at this time aren’t sure how to feel about Wonder Woman, which begs the question will anyone even tune in to watch the show.
Bionic Woman lasted less than a full season on TV, so it will be interesting to see how a female action character with some of those same characteristics, albeit it natural powers, could fair in primetime.
What do you think about the idea of a Wonder Woman TV series?
