We've been waiting a long time for a Wonder Woman movie. (And we're not the only ones—Jennifer Love Hewitt, among others, has been campaigning for the role.) But it turns out the Amazonian superhero will be coming to TV instead—and adapted for the small screen by someone we'd NEVER have expected.

David E. Kelley, the executive producer of such TV hits as Ally McBeal, Boston Public, The Practice and Boston Legal, has been brought on board to write and produce a new Wonder Woman series.

According to Deadline, though it's known Kelley has met with DC regarding the project, very little is known about exactly HOW the superheroine might be adapted:

Details on the reboot are being kept under wraps, and it is not clear if the new Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince will keep her signature powers and weapons, including her Lasso of Truth, her indestructible bracelets, her tiara and her invisible airplane.

The TV series reportedly does not rule out a movie based on the character.

So what do you think? Do you want to see Wonder Woman classic on your TV? Or should Kelley go all Smallville with her when translating her for a new audience?
