America, Your New Wonder Woman Is ...

David E. Kelley has found his Wonder Woman, and she's a choice that will have fans of quality TV very, very happy. TV's next Wonder Woman is Adrianne Palicki, better known as Tyra from Friday Night Lights. NBC has ordered a pilot for the reboot, which imagines Ms. Diana Prince as a very modern woman (and a lover of Beyoncé). Jeffrey Reiner, who directed NBC's The Event, will helm the pilot, scheduled to shoot starting in mid-March. It's been a big day for iconic casting at the Peacock: NBC insiders confirm the network is in final talks with ER vet Maria Bello to take over the Helen Mirren role in the network's remake of Prime Suspect.
