Adrianne Palicki, the American actress best known for her role on 'Friday Night Lights', is the new 'Wonder Woman', according to the Hollywood Reporter.Palicki will play the superhero in DAVID E. KELLEY's forthcoming pilot episode for NBC. The story will follow Wonder Woman, aka Diana Prince, as she attempts to balance her hectic life as a vigilante crime fighter, with her successful job as a cooperate executive. Palicki, who played 'Tyra Collete' in the acclaimed television series 'Friday Night Lights', is also set to appear in the forthcoming 'Red Dawn' remake. The 'Wonder Woman' pilot has been written by Kelley himself, and BILL D'ELIA will serve as executive producer. Warner Bros and producer Joel Silver attempted to make a big-screen adaptation of 'Wonder Woman' around ten years ago, with Angelina Jolie tipped to take the lead, however, the project never materialised.
The original television series, which ran from 1975 to 1979 starred Lynda Carter as the crime fighting super hero.

R U kidding me? Wonder Woman... really??? I KNOW Wonder Woman and this chick is certainly no Wonder Woman. It looks like she is playing dress up trying to look the part, but it ain't working honey! Besides has my favorite heroine now resorted to turning tricks? The top is corny and thigh high boots,huh? Bring back Linda Carter please!

I must agree with the previous comment. Speaking as a woman that grew up with Wonder Woman as an iconic classic superhero geared toward females and our strengths, I am quite disappointed that this particular actress was picked to step into the role that Ms, Lynda Carter was absolutely perfection in. I do believe in giving everyone a fair chance, but please give us someone with talent and "the look"- Thank you!!!!

Uh, people...read the caption under the picture. That isn't Adrianne Palicki and the costume is made from Chocolate. It was for some event, not the new TV series. Just a thought...know what you are talking about before you post. :-)

It's about time. There are not to many female super hero's for girls out there. It would be awesome if they would allow a lesbian as a character. That would definitely give it a twist. Say, a female Steve? Does NBC have the guts?

I am not happy either. I have been waiting for a Wonder Woman movie or TV show and this is what I get. However, I will await the pilot and see how she does. After that she's fair game.

Uh, folks, the title of the show is Wonder Woman, not Wonder Stick with some Implants on Top. Lynda Carter is a beautiful, well-endowed woman, who fit the role (and the suit). As a teenager, when the original show was on, my testosterone never let me miss an episode. Based on some other photos I have seen of the new one, I think I'll pass.

The real big screen movie that involved Jolie and the window opprutunity on that movie has long been closed,damn they missed out on doing a good one too! Lynda Carter as the mother and Jolie as Wonder Woman would have been a dynamic duo for sure, even if Carter wouldn't have done it Catherine Zeta Jones would have been just as good or even better! It's a shame nothing materialized on this project!

I agree with the other two comments....not to mention the fact that she looks like a stick. I know "thin" is "in" with Hollywood, but please. Linda Carter was curvy and beautiful, not some matchstick that looks like she could be broken in half. How are we to believe her strength with a figure like that?

i grew up watching wonder woman and watch every single episode with lynda carter as wonder woman. the superb job that ms. carter did as the superhero will and can never be duplicated by any other actress. i think this is in very bad taste for nbc to try to duplicate the original series. i don't think it will last. and the actress who is chosen to play the role of wonder woman, please she does not and cannot compare to the talent and beauty of lynda carter. you are wasting time spending money and paying people to try and upstage or even come close to the original story line and the series. now about the outfit of the new wonder woman. what are you people thinking. original is/was classic. this outfit looks like a disaster. frills and long boots is not going to work. this series is going to be a flop so if you want to save your money and the embarrasment of having a flop, please stop the production at once. trying to duplicate that wonderful and classic series is disaster in the making. please do millions of americans and another million or so around the world a favor and don't make this series.

This is not Adrianne Palicki. Her her up on the web. I think she might be a good fit.
