Over on our Show Tracker blog, Melissa Maerz seems happy to see Wonder Woman get another TV spotlight, but notes that questions are already being raised over David E. Kelley’s treatment of the Amazonian princess.
We’re suckers for a lady with a lasso, so when we heard the news that, after initally passing on the project, NBC picked up David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” pilot, we couldn’t help but cheer.
And yet, before the show even starts, Wonder Woman’s already got a lot of forces to battle – and we aren’t just talking about Cyborgirl. Remembering Kelley’s biggest contribution to the women’s movement — the “short-skirted, romantically challenged, possibly insane television lawyer” Ally McBeal — Mary Elizabeth Williams at Salon recently quipped, “The guy who killed feminism is reviving Wonder Woman.”
