CW network abandons plans for Amazon series

The Hollywood Reporter says that a planned TV show serving as a prequel for Wonder Woman has been scrapped by the CW channel:
Amazon was poised to explore the origin story of Wonder Woman's alter ego Diana of Themyscira. The network announced in September 2012 that it was teaming with Grey's Anatomy's Allan Heinberg to develop the story. The script was redeveloped in May, with Heroes writer Aron Eli Coleite taking a new stab at the story, and the network was poised to take the project to pilot for a potential off-cycle pickup. But that no longer will happen.

"We did not go forward with it," CW president Mark Pedowitz told The Hollywood Reporter following his Wednesday session at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour.

While Amazon will not move forward, Pedowitz was open to taking a second stab at the iconic Wonder Woman character if the right material were to come along.
But there's no telling if that'll come to pass. One attempt at a pilot episode for a new WW series never got off the ground, and the same's happened here too. There may have once been a time when a TV project like this had the potential of working. But with the kind of people now running the show, it's much harder to pull off.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. 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.
