A Wondrous TV Pilot
According to Deadline, Wonder Woman may yet land on TV. Warner Bros TV has hired casting directors Barbara Fiorentino and Danielle Aufiero to launch a search for the lead actress in anticipation of a potential pilot pickup. Allan Heinberg has written an origin for Wonder Woman’s life as a young Amazonian before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers.
According to the breakdown, Wonder woman will come 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, she 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. She 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. She 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.”
The casting search is being conducted while the script for the pilot is still being written.
