You don’t have to like latex to appreciate Adrianna Palicki’s amazing figure in the newly-revamped Wonder Woman costume. Palicki will take on the dual role of superhero/Diana Prince in NBC’s new reboot, and she’ll be doing it with a fierce gold whip.
Not bad. Palicki definitely has the Amazonian look down pat, though some purists are having strong reactions to the notable costume changes (Wonder Woman in pants?! Inconceivable!). But Lynda Carter, TV’s first Wonder Woman, is voicing no complaints.

One well-known TV writer is venturing where some of Hollywood's finest scriptwriters fear to pen.
David E. Kelley (whose credits include Ally McBeal, Boston Public and The Practice) is working on a new Wonder Woman script which will re-launch the franchise in TV.
Kelley has inked a deal with Warner Brothers to bring the superheroine to the small screen—and things look promising. Kelley has a lot of TV clout, a clever way to with dialogue and a string of successful series to his credit.
Wonder Woman was previously the subject of her own TV series in the late 1970s. Lynda Carter became known as the iconic Wonder Woman of that era.
Another series was attempted in the 1990s,this time with Deborah Joy LeVine penning the script (her work includes Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), but the project was scrapped during casting of the title character.

UPDATE: Find out what one former Munster has to say about the remake.
The minute we heard CBS was planning to redo Hawaii Five-0, we should have seen this coming. Yes, you guessed it: NBC is going to bring back The Munsters.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the network is envisioning a “Modern Family meets True Blood” type of series. (I’ll let you figure that one out.)
The (possible) good news? NBC has smartly recruited Bryan Fuller—the creator of Pushing Daisies—to help retool the 1960s comedy about a family of monsters. At this point, only a pilot has been ordered.
Word has it even Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth) is even interested in doing something behind the scenes.
So what do you think of this project? Could it be enough to get NBC out of fourth place?

This doesn’t bode well for upcoming TV seasons. NBC, ABC and CBS are all following the same environmental trend: they’re recycling. However, these network TV additions won’t reduce emissions or help us in an energy crisis - if anything, it’s just going to bring down the value of network TV.
All three networks will be re-hashing the 1970s by bringing back The Rockford Files (NBC), Charlie’s Angels (ABC) and Hawaii Five-O (CBS). They’re following a current trend in Hollywood, where everything old is new again. Even Betty White is experiencing a somewhat renewed popularity.
This opens the door for all sorts of other 1970s shows. Someone, somewhere, is getting ready to re-pitch Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo and Feather and the Father Gang.
