David E. Kelley had high hopes for his TV reboot of Wonder Woman, having recently finished the pilot script. But the project is indefinitely postponed, as all of the major networks have passed on the project.
Sources say that Wonder Woman's failure to take flight is a matter of poor timing. Kelley intended to do a contemporary take on the popular DC Comics heroine for Warner Bros. TV. The pilot script was shopped around on Wednesday, with Fox and ABC passing on the series almost immediately. Fox was not considered a good fit for the show's subject matter, and ABC has too strong of a connection with Disney, who recently acquired the rights to Marvel, and have been developing projects for the network such as the new Hulk series. So ABC considered taking on DC's Wonder Woman a conflict of interests.
The series then went to the CW, home of Smallville, where it was quickly decided that they couldn't afford it. NBC and CBS both also passed on the project.
It is possible that the pilot script that Kelley wrote will be taken out again to potential bidders sometime in the future.
