Wonder Woman TV series attracts director McG?


Wonder Woman is making her big television comeback courtesy of Ally McBeal creator David E. Kelley – and it seems she could be getting a helping hand from film director McG to boot.

TV channel NBC recently purchased Kelley’s pilot script and concept, and are looking around for a director qualified enough to bring Kelley’s vision to life on-screen.

Their current favourite is Charlie’s Angels and Terminator Salvation director McG, who they want to helm the show’s pivotal pilot episode – i.e. the one that establishes the identity of the show, and will hopefully get an entire season picked up.

Which sort of makes sense, considering McG has had a hand in numerous TV shows, including Nikita and Supernatural . He also directed the action-packed pilot for Chuck .

The only question is if the director will have time, considering he’s just signed on to helm Universal’s massive summer tentpole Ouija . But then, if Wonder Woman wants him, who’s he to deny her?
