NBC has found its Wonder Woman!
"Friday Night Lights" star Adrianne Palicki has landed the coveted lead role in the broadcaster’s reboot of the classic 1970s series. Wonder Woman is being remade by Boston Legal writer David E. Kelley, who has incorporated the superhero’s signature lasso, cuffs, and plane in the script.
Here’s the official Wonder Woman description: "The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman — a.k.a. Diana Prince — is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life."

The script is a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics character that pays homage to TV’s original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter.
Good news indeed :) More Wonder Woman 12-inch figures to come
