Wonder Woman in Development at the CW
Third time might be a charm for DC Comics’ Wonder Woman. After Joss Whedon failed to get a film to screen and NBC failed to create a pilot worth picking up to series, now the CW is in the process of developing a project starring the character.
The project, working title Amazon, is being developed by the CW in association with WB TV and DC Comics. The pilot script is being written by Allan Heinberg, a television writer with comic book street cred. Heinberg wrote several comic runs before moving most of his efforts into television. Among his more notable titles include Young Avengers, JLA, and Wonder Woman itself.
Since the project is just in the script development stage and no pilot has been ordered specifics on the series are few and far between. What we do know is that the series, like many of those airing on the CW, will focus on a young adult protagonist. In the proposed series Wonder Woman will be a teen coming into her own and not a full-fledged superhero. Those of you that followed Smallville during its run can look to that series as a likely indicator of the tone.
