  • America, here's your new Wonder Woman!

    Adrianne Palicki in 'Lone Star.' (USA)

    Bad guys better get out of town!

    A new Wonder Woman has finally been cast for the remake of the classic ‘70s super hero TV series.

    The gorgeous Adrianne Palicki, who wowed viewers and Hollywood honchos alike during her brief turn on Fox’s cancelled “Lone Star,” will put on her bullet-proof bracelets to play the role made iconic by Lynda Carter.

    Palicki was thought to be perfect for the role, and she was the only actress invited to do a screen test. Perhaps Palicki’s statuesque beauty had something to do with it—standing at 5’11”, she’s the ideal height to portray an Amazon crime-fighter.

    Prolific producer David E. Kelley teamed with Warner Bros. to bring the series back to television, but not without some hiccups.

    The concept was initially shot down by all the major networks. NBC finally gave the green light for Kelley and Warner Bros. to produce a pilot in late January.

    In the remake of the classic D. C. Comics character, Wonder Woman/Diana Prince is not just a vigilante crime fighter in modern Los Angeles, but also a successful corporate executive. The series will follow the character trying to balance being a super hero, a businesswoman and a singleton.

    Kind of like Ally McBeal , one of Kelley’s former creations, with a cape.
