Pending visa issues, Deadline is reporting that British actress Elizabeth Hurley has been cast in a recurring role in David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” reboot for NBC starring Adrianne Palicki as the title character.

Hurley is expected to guest star in the pilot as the villain Veronica Gale, a beautiful “highly-educated head of one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the country who is afflicted with the serious deep-seated Wonder Woman envy.”

The project, from David E. Kelley Prods. and Warner Bros. TV — is a reboot 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 day 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).
