Both Variety and Deadline are reporting that a pick-up for NBC’s Wonder Woman pilot looks unlikely, contravening some rumors that went out this morning. WW show runner David E. Kelley might not get blanked, however — his show Harry’s Law, starring Kathy Bates, is likely to be renewed.
Nothing will be official until the actual upfronts announcement on Monday.
The Wonder Woman TV reboot, starring Adrienne Palicki, has been a source of constant scrutiny since it was announced. The script was leaked, and widely panned, with an “ice cream sleepover” and other Ally McBeal-esque touches coming in for the most criticism. Early PR shots of Palicki were also mocked, with her costume coming in for intense investigation; some on set pictures got a more positive reaction.
And we’re not even going to get into Wonder Woman’s previous screen travails…
In the meantime, we still have Kathy Bates.
