Drats! Wonder Woman won’t fly on the small screen again after all — at least not in 2011. David E. Kelley’s reboot of Lynda Carter’s ’70s cult favorite has been shelved after a number of TV networks passed on the project, Deadline Hollywood has learned.
Carter starred in the popular live-action Wonder Woman series from 1975 to 1979 on both ABC and CBS. However, various attempts to relaunch the character on television since then have all failed. In October Warner Bros. Television teamed up with the Boston Legal creator in an attempt to bring the iconic DC Comics character back to the small screen.
However, according to Deadline, all major networks have now passed on the project. Though The CW expressed interest, network bosses were unable to afford the rights teleplay.
