Despite all the major broadcasters having passed on the show, David E. Kelley tells The Hollywood Reporter that he still thinks his vision for “Wonder Woman” will air down the road.
“I think the likelihood is we’ll see it next year,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m being optimistic but I don’t think I’m being unrealistic.”
Kelley noted that the script was “rolled out very late in the game” and said that he would bring the project back to NBC, which reportedly passed. The project reportedly failed to move forward there due to executive reshuffling.
He said that the network, premiering his new legal drama Harry’s Law on Monday, which he was promoting at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, would be a “good home for it” under incoming programming chief Robert Greenblatt.
“I like to think of it as a smart script and I know he responds to smart material,” Kelley said Thursday of his vision in which Wonder Woman would be explored as a “real complex woman and not just a superhero.”
Another option for the show could be cable.
