WB is trying again to launch a new Wonder Woman TV series

This one is being developed under the working title of "Amazon" for now, and they're even using the "working name" of Iris for WW, although the name Diana doesn't seem to have been changed per se. The premise for the proposed version is as follows (via Entertainment Weekly):
“Iris comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She’s delighted ­and just as often horrified ­ by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It’s all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling ­to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she’s completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what’s on her mind at all times. She’s bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you’re lying to her. And she doesn’t have time or patience for politics or tact because she’s too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see ­and things to learn ­and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic ­and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere.”
Is this supposed to be her mother, the queen of the Amazons, or is it Diana? Because while the mother may have had experience on the battlegrounds, the daughter did not, and was raised in a pretty peaceful environment on Themyscira, even pre-Crisis. That's one drawback of this current draft they're going by, that it makes the heroine's origin dark, even if this isn't the comics where the problem is already prevalent under Brian Azzarello. Once again, we have a situation where the writers cannot seem to make do with the premise of a lead who comes from an optimistic world and tries to help mortals find the same in theirs. Beyond that, it remains to be seen if this version will make it past the test screenings.

I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
