Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has been cast in David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman series.  The reboot of the DC Comics title centers around Diana Prince, a.k.a. Diane Themyscira a big wig corporate exec and vigilante.  The pilot is being directed by Jeffery Reiner and was written by Kelley.  So far there is no air date but I would expect to see this in the fall.  I’m disappointed Minka Kelly didn’t get the part, but that’s life.

Now I am not 100% sure about how well this series will do.  Superhero shows are tricky things to make successful.  If you stray too far from the canon of the original story then you alienate fans and the show suffers.  But if you stay completely true to the original, you have a hard time picking up new viewers and low ratings result.  The original Wonder Woman series, as dreadful as it was lasted several seasons.  It will be interesting to see how well this one does.
