NBC Passes on Wonder Woman Pilot

Do you see that Invisible Jet? Yeah…neither do we.

After initially being turned down by NBC, and later greenlit by the network’s new governing body, David E. Kelley’s much-talked-about Wonder Woman television series has not been picked up.

Planned as a serious, real-world take on the life and times of DC’s Amazon princess, Kelley’s pilot gained a lot of attention from the fan community after the release of the first costume photo. Photos from the set followed, featuring a revamped costume and showing actress Adrianne Palicki in action.

With the hype (and costume controversy) that has surrounded this project, it is likely that the pilot might see the light of day, even if the series will not.  This assumption is based on the precedent set by the 2007 Aquaman pilot, starring Smallville’s Green Arrow, Justin Hartley. That fully-produced pilot was released through iTunes and sold as a Best Buy exclusive.

So, there is still hope, fanboys.  You may get to see Adrianne Palicki kicking ass in her skinny jeans after all!
