Palicki has been cast to star as the title character Wonder Woman for the upcoming NBC pilot.
The project, from David E. Kelley Prods. and Warner Bros. TV — is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman, a.k.a. Diana Prince, is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.
Kelley and Bill D’Elia (Boston Legal, The Practice) are executive producing. The pilot was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner (The Event).
Palicki, who appeared as Tyra Collete in the NBC/DirecTV series “Friday Night Lights,” stars in the upcoming “Red Dawn.” Palicki’s most recent series regular role was Fox’s short-lived Texas-set drama “Lone Star,” which aired only two episodes last fall before being canceled.
