With all the hype surrounding the upcoming debut of the new CW series Arrow, there may be another super hero franchise in the works. CW is reportedly working on a series that would focus on Wonder Woman. Yes, the same Wonder Woman who had a failed pilot shot for NBC a few months ago developed by David E. Kelly and featuring Adrianne Palicki in the title role.
CW is looking to develop the project in much of a Smallville type of manner. The going idea for the series would be to focus on a young Diana developing as the super hero who will eventually become Wonder Woman.
As of now, a pilot has not been greenlit or even ordered by the studio. The working title of the possible series is Amazon. The script is being written by Allan Heinberg (Grey’s Anatomy, The O.C. and the Young Avengers Comic Book). The character has been a hard one to sell as several TV and movie ideas for the character have either been outright rejected, been shuttered by endless production hassles, or failed after doing horribly with test audiences.
