Roped in by the Lasso of Truth.
Veteran producer David E. Kelley
took some blows last week after all of the networks turned down his pitch for a Wonder Woman
TV series. Rather than taking the hint, Kelley put on his most optimistic smile and stated publicly
that he’s hopeful “we’ll see it next year” on NBC, which numbers among the networks that already passed on the idea. Kelley wants to explore the heroine as a “real complex woman and not just a superhero,” which makes perfect sense for an Amazonian princess armed with indestructible bracers, a magical lasso and an invisible airplane…? --Adam Rosenberg
