Finally, here’s some substantial clips from that failed Wonder Woman TV pilot. I tried to put one up before, but it got pulled from YouTube before it could thrive, and it was only about four seconds of bad footage anyway. This is several minutes of finished, but still bad footage.
This is totally a 90’s action show. Which of course means I would have watched it and recorded it on VHS.

Wonder Woman Reboot NO MORE by David Crim
Ever since its demise at the hands of NBC executives, David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman pilot has been one of the hottest “gets” in Hollywood. Once the show failed to get picked up to series I started calling my contacts and was met, almost universally, with “I don’t have it, but I’m trying to get it.”
Persistence pays off and eventually I got my hands on a copy of the pilot.
(For contextual purposes, you might want to check out my review of the script before reading my review of the pilot.)
For all its problems I actually enjoyed the Wonder Woman pilot script that made the rounds and was looking forward to seeing it brought to life. In the time since that first draft was written a lot of work must have been done because what we have in the actual pilot is a leaner and meaner version of the script that I read. While the overall plot is the same, there must have been a page one rewrite because every scene has been rewritten, reworked, or excised completely. (In fact, a friend of mine who works as a writer in Hollywood told me back in March that the script had been completely overhauled.) Whether it happened in the writing or in the editing, the result is the same: a whole lot of fat was cut.
And here’s some video of Adrianne Palicki in action from the new Wonder Woman TV series by David E. Kelley.
