Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki has lassoed the starring role in NBC's reworking of Wonder Woman. In the new series pilot from David E. Kelley (Harry's Law), Palicki will play Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince), a Los Angeles-based crime fighter who leads a double life as a corporate executive.
As TV Guide Magazine's William Keck recently reported, the new Wonder Woman will actually feature three personas: Wonder Woman, Diana Prince and Themyscira Industries C.E.O. Diana Themyscira.
Palicki played Tyra Collete on Friday Night Lights, and is one of several actors from that show to line up new projects this pilot season, including Minka Kelly (ABC's Charlie's Angels) and Connie Britton (who's said to be mulling a new project at FX.) Palicki's other credits include Fox's short-lived Lone Star, the feature Breaking the Girl and the upcoming remake of Red Dawn.
