David E. Kelley on Bringing Wonder Woman to Television

Although a new take on the character is headed to the small screen with The CW’s upcoming “Amazon,” The Hollywood Reporter had the opportunity to speak with showrunner David E. Kelley about his own recent “Wonder Woman” pilot that never made it to series.

“We made mistakes with ours,” Kelley admits. “My only regret is we were never given a chance to correct them. We had a lot that was right about it and a great cast. In time, we could have fixed what we had done wrong, we just didn’t get that chance.”

The series, which was planned to air on NBC, had Adrianne Palicki in the title role.

“I still believe it’s viable for a television series,” Kelley continues, offering well wishes to “Amazon,” “I think it’s ripe to do it… I’m sad we didn’t get to do it but I do believe it can work for the CW. They’re smart to try it.”
