The President of CW, Mark Pedowitz had some interesting words about the possible Wonder Woman series.
Asked about Amazon today at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “First off, we’re waiting to see the script. Second off, we’re busy casting for Diana as we speak. Hopefully the script works the way we want.” He added that Amazon was, “an origination story in the sense that Smallville was an origination story.”And...
Arrow has turned into The CW’s biggest hit since The Vampire Diaries and I asked Pedowitz if that show’s success helps Amazon’s profile as The CW looks at potential new series – and whether they might be looking at other DC characters. Replied Pedowitz, “Arrow’s success, when you have Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg as your showrunners, that has a lot to do with that success and we hope Allan Heinberg will have the same success with what Amazon will be. But it does help, in terms of that.”
With casting already underway, I asked Pedowitz if it was safe to assume Amazon was going to get a pilot at the least. He replied, “If we get the right script and the right casting, we’ll go right forward to pilot.”This leaves me a little nervous.Nothing is set and the hunt for the perfect 'Diana' maybe impossible to complete within the timeline for the fall.
