Adrianne Palicki Cast As Wonder Woman In New TV Series

It’s been speculated for months, even before the idea of David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman TV series was even on the table. But now, the Amazon Warrior finally has an actress to play her in the upcoming show: Friday Night Lights star Adrianne Palicki. From THR:

The project, from David E. Kelley Prods. and Warner Bros. TV, is a retelling of the DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman (Palicki), a.k.a. Diana Prince, tries to balance her life as a vigilante crime fighter, a successful corporate executive and a modern woman.

Palicki, who appeared as Tyra Collete in the NBC/DirecTV series Friday Night Lights, stars in the upcoming Red Dawn. Her most recent series regular role was Fox’s short-lived Texas-set drama Lone Star, which aired only two episodes last fall.

So here we are, over a decade later after names like Joel Silver, Joss Whedon, and plenty more have had their turn trying to invigorate the project in either film or TV, Boston Legal creator David E. Kelley is the one to finally bring the project to life.

Expect to see some publicity shots of Palicki in the (hopefully) classic Wonder Woman outfit soon enough, as the plan is to pitch the show to the network for next year’s pilot season.

    She was pretty good in her prior genre work in the Aquaman pilot and the Season 2 finale of Smallville. She sells the super-strength stuff pretty naturally.

    excellent choice! she’s absolutely gorgeous and if you’ve had the pleasure of watching her on FNL then you know she’s truly able to pull off being a strong female lead.
