Looks like Wonder Woman will again fly to the small screen after all: NBC has picked up David E. Kelley's pilot about the DC Comics superheroine, Deadline reports.
The order comes two weeks after networks, including NBC, initially passed on the project. According to Deadline, the Peacock was interested in Wonder Woman two weeks ago, but was forced to turn it down as NBC Universal's merger with Comcast was still in flux. The $13.8 billion deal was approved Tuesday, allowing new Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt to move forward with the pickup.

It takes a special man to be Samantha Jones' love interest. But then again, it takes a special man to admit crying during the first Sex and the City movie.
"I was like, I've got to see what this is about. I need to know what I'm doing," Sex and the City 2 actor Max Ryan tells TVGuide.com. "I watched the movie and I was emotionally touched. I actually cried a bit. It's quite embarrassing but I did. I was happy, I was sad, and I was like, 'Whoa, this is really good.'"

With the trades now confirming what Michael Patrick King told Extra earlier this week, Chris Noth is giving mad props to the Sex and the City filmmakers for squeezing in Big. "I was thrilled that the producers were able to work around my Law & Order: Criminal Intent schedule," the actor tells the New York Daily News. Noth also likes what he sees in the Sexy flick, saying, "I am happy to be back in the flesh as Mr. Big, especially after reading Michael Patrick King's script." Yeah, being surrounded by fab femmes is always a good read.Related: Sex and the City Boss Shares "Big" Film News, Will Sex and the City Film Be a "Big" Deal?

Though the most recent reports I've seen have Chris Noth claiming he had yet to sign on the dotted line, Michael Patrick King the writer/director of the upcoming Sex and the City film says that Carrie's one-and-only is, in fact, a part of the big-screen follow-up. As King tells TV's Extra, "[I am] happy to report that Mr. Big is alive and well and living in New York City!" King's comment seemingly snuffs building buzz that the ladies' feature folly will not be precipitated by Carrie's wedding but rather Big's death. After all, a tombstone would require getting his last name. (And good luck with that.)
