Wonder Woman Series in Development at The CW Network

The CW Network is developing a Wonder Woman TV seriesLast May, NBC declined to pick up David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot starring Adrianne Palicki. Today, we have word that The CW Network is developing their own Wonder Woman series.

Grey's Anatomy writer Allan Heinberg is writing the pilot script, that will take a much different approach to the superhero character. This version will center on a younger version of Diana of Themyscira, telling her origin story. Allan Heinberg does have a background in comics, writing the Young Avengers series back in 2005.

The network is only developing the script at this time, and no commitments have been made to actually make the pilot yet. It is also worth noting that Warner Bros. has been developing a Wonder Woman movie for some time now, with Michael Goldenberg working on the screenplay. It will be interesting to see if the film or TV version gets off the ground first.

If the show does make it to series, it may serve as a nice companion to the network's other superhero show, Arrow, debuting October 10.
