Wonder Woman Is Returning to TV

  • 28comments

... The very foxy Wonder Woman is returning to television, and the man behind the reboot isn't who you might expect. Warner Bros. TV has announced that a series featuring the superheroine is in development and has tapped David E. Kelley to produce it. Kelley of course is the mind behind a gaggle of legal dramas, including Ally McBeal and Boston Legal. Maybe she'll capture bad guys AND prosecute them? [The Live Feed]

... Speaking of Ally McBeal, actor Peter MacNicol will join Grey's Anatomy for a short arc as a pediatrician. Expect him to be around for a few episodes, but don't expect him to make out with anyone. [TV Guide]

... E! has ordered a reality show pilot that will follow Lara Flynn Boyle around as she acts like Lara Flynn Boyle. [Deadline Hollywood]

... With Olivia Wilde gone from House for the foreseeable future, a cute new female doctor needs to check in. Enter Amber Tamblyn (Joan of Arcadia). Tamblyn will play a medical student who is brought on staff by Cuddy as a way to balance out all the testosterone on the team. [TV Guide]

... The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco missed a few episodes of the show due to a horse-riding accident that left her with a broken leg, but she's been cleared to return to work on October 13 and will only miss two episodes as a result. So feel free to add her into your weekly fantasy television lineup that week, as she'll make a great flex option against a depleted Community defense. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Smallville producers have cast the role of Deathstroke, and by golly, did they do a bang-up job! Actor Michael Hogan, who played Colonel Tigh in Battlestar Galactica, will appear in the ninth episode of this final Smallville season as Slade before he become the comic-book bad guy. [IGN]

... ABC Family has canceled... Huge. Pretty Little Liars, featuring wafer-thin hot chicks, was renewed. Huge, about teens at a weight-loss camp, was canceled. TV: where real-life need not apply. [Deadline Hollywood]
