2017’s Wonder Woman marked the return of the Amazon Princess to the big screen, the first time the character had appeared in her own live action project since the Lynda Carter fronted TV show ended in 1979. It wasn’t meant to be that way, though. Like other big name superhero projects, there have been other attempts to get Diana Prince on the screen.
One of those came in 2011, when NBC created a pilot TV show for Wonder Woman that, as happens with these things, was never picked up for a series or screened anywhere. Adrianne Palicki, who had appeared in an unsuccessful Aquaman pilot in 2007 and an episode of Smallville in 2004, but was probably best known for starring as Tyra Collette in the series Friday Night Lights, was cast in the lead role.
Pilots are greenlit, produced and scrapped without a second
