Deadline.com is reporting that Wonder Woman, the most famous female superhero of all time, may be coming back to television, in a series written and produced by David E. Kelley, the creator of Ally McBeal, Boston Public, and other shows.
Kelley is working with DC Comics, the publisher of the Wonder Woman comic, to develop the series. No network is yet attached.
It’s not known if the Wonder Woman reboot will follow the comic’s current incarnation (which was recently updated), the “classic” version from the 1940s (after the character was created in 1941), or some altogether new version.
Wonder Woman was previously a TV series, The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, that famously starred Lynda Carter who became strongly associated with the role. It ran from 1975 to 1979 on both ABC and CBS.
A live-action movie version of the character’s story has also long been in the works, and is reportedly still in active development.
