David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman' Lives on at NBC
NBC has picked up David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman to pilot, a source confirms to THR.
Kelley, who is behind the freshman legal drama Harry's Law, had brought the project to the network once before, but NBC reportedly passed due to executive reshuffling.
In an interview with Kelley during the Television Critics Assn. press tour earlier this month, he stated that it was a possibility that Wonder Woman could land on the small screen soon.
"I think the likelihood is we'll see it next year," Kelley hinted to THR in mid-January. "I'm being optimistic but I don't think I'm being unrealistic."
He noted that NBC would be a "good home for it." "I like to think of it as a smart script and I know [new NBC programming chief Bob Greenblatt] responds to smart material," he said, adding that Wonder Woman would be a "real complex woman and not just a superhero."
Sex and the City's Michael Patrick King's hourlong drama Mann's World has also been given a pilot order.
World centers on a celebrity hair stylist living in Los Angeles.
Earlier on Friday, Greenblatt picked up a musical from Steven Spielberg and a romantic comedy pilot. Angela Bromstad announced her exit earlier this week from NBC.
