The CW Still Developing WONDER WOMAN Origin Pilot AMAZON


Last year, it was reported that The CW was developing a television pilot that would retell the origin of DC Comics’ Wonder Woman. Titled Amazon, the pilot was compared to Smallville and would follow Diana Prince before she gained superpowers and became perhaps the greatest heroine of all time. Especially with the recent success of Arrow, it’d make more sense for the network to move forward with more DC-based shows. However, Amazon failed to find a slot onto The CW’s fall 2013 schedule. At the network’s upfront presentations this week, CW president Mark Pedowitz said that the pilot was still in development, and they’re currently working on getting it right. It’s being redeveloped. We don’t want to produce something that doesn’t do the franchise justice. It’s the trickiest of all the DC characters.” Heroes scribe Aron Eli Coleite is rewriting the pilot, which was originally scripted by Allan Heinberg. It’s possible that Amazon will be greenlit for a spring 2014 premiere if picked up. [Entertainment Weekly]
