In an attempt to update the lasso launching heroine, the plan was to bring Wonder Woman back to TV screens during the 90s with a show from Lois & Clark creator Debra Joy LeVine.
OH.SO WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED?
With Lois & Clark having proved a success on TV, Warner’s was keen for LeVine to work her magic once again, but this time with Wonder Woman as the star with a new take on the character.LeVine decided that the show was to be less comic-book focused and instead saw it as a cross between Xena and Ally McBeal.Wonder Woman’s alter ego would have remained as Diana Prince, but she would have been a Greek history professor less concerned with rushing out to fight crime and more interested in trying to lead a normal life.
BUT WHAT DID HAPPEN?
LeVine wrote the script for the pilot and started the casting process, but the project fell apart.The official statement as to why it never came together was that the producers were never quite able to find an actress to match up to Lynda Carter, the actress who played the character during the popular 70s TV series.
WAS THIS SUCH A BAD THING?
No as it just sounded awful!LeVine had been instrumental in making Lois & Clark a success, so she clearly had made some good choices with that character, but as far as Wonder Woman went it sounded as if she was deliberately moving away from the comics and the Lynda Carter show; the two elements behind Wondy’s continued popularity!
BUT WHAT IF?
If there had of been a TV series based on Wonder Woman during the 90s then...
aw hell, there shouldn’t have been one!And if there had have been, then Xena actress Lucy Lawless should have played Wonder Woman.
