NBC rejects "Wonder Woman"

Well that was fun (to make fun of) while it lasted. EW has learned that NBC passed on the much buzzed-about Wonder Woman pilot from David E. Kelley and Warner Bros. TV.

Kelley had penned a script that updated the comic book classic to have Diana Prince as CEO of a major conglomerate by day and a butt-kicking Amazon (with a fleet of cool planes) by night. Kelley's take asked for lots of heart-thumping, contemporary music, and at one point the Boston Legal writer even requested a commercial-free premiere for the pilot if it aired.

Why did the 'ol girl fail to pass muster?

NBC isn't saying for now but scuttlebutt reveals the pilot earned mixed reviews at test screenings. And then there was all the online blow back about the costume --which seemed to de-emphasize the patriotism and play up the comic's Greek mythology. Ultimately, the wardrobe department went back to the drawing board but that didn't seem to save the project.

Big bummer for Adrianne Palicki --a budding star from Friday Night Lights who deserved a leading role on the fall lineup. Maybe she can fill the void left by Minka Kelly on Parenthood and be the hot gal who keeps messing with Crosby's mind. Or...Warner Bros. TV may try to shop the pilot elsewhere. But who would take a gamble on a pilot that NBC rejected?

Also not making the cut: Don Johnson's return to TV in Mann's World, a drama about a hairstylist, and the Civil War-era Western Reconstruction and Ron Moore's magic cops drama 17th Precinct.
