Ok, it’s official: Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have a TV series to replace Smallville. Yeah, I know…I didn’t really care either. Then I heard it was Wonder Woman, and years of memories of Lynda Carter came flooding back. And then, I heard that Davie E. Kelly would be the guy in charge, and I thought that there might be more to this show than just nostalgia and dreams of raven-haired women in bathing suits.
For those who don’t know, David E. Kelly is the co-creator of Doogie Howser, and the creator of The Practice and Boston Legal (among other shows). As difficult as it will be to make viewers think someone other than Lynda Carter can bring the character to life, I’d be willing to think that Kelly has something interesting in store.
While the details of the story are under wraps, smart money says that Wonder Woman (if they even call it that) will feel similar to the highly successful Smallville. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to give it a shot in hopes that there will be a Lynda Carter cameo.
