David E. Kelley 'Optimistic' Viewers Will See 'Wonder Woman' Next Year
Veteran showrunner optimistic that his take on '70s TV series will air next year.
Veteran showrunner David E. Kelley is optimistic that his vision for Wonder Woman will make it to the small screen next year despite broadcast networks passing on his script this week.
"I think the likelihood is we'll see it next year," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm being optimistic but I don't think I'm being unrealistic."
Kelley noted that the script was "rolled out very late in the game" and said that he would bring the project back to NBC, which reportedly passed. The project reportedly failed to move forward there due to executive reshuffling.
He said that the network, premiering his new legal drama Harry's Law on Monday, which he was promoting at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, would be a "good home for it" under incoming programming chief Robert Greenblatt.
"I like to think of it as a smart script and I know he responds to smart material," Kelley said Thursday of his vision in which Wonder Woman would be explored as a "real complex woman and not just a superhero."
Kelley also mentioned that it's a "possibility" Wonder Woman could land at cable.
