Given the nerdy public’s touchiness with regard to the new Wonder Woman costume, and leaked plot details that were widely panned, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that NBC has decided not to pick up the Wonder Woman series.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt explained why they passed:
“I hate to disappoint anybody. I know there are legions of fans of the original show,” Greenblatt told EW. “I don’t know if it’s cursed or what. I just have this one experience. They made a really fine pilot and Adrianne Palicki did a fantastic job. You look at what you have, what you need, and it just didn’t seem to fit in with what we were doing.
“We did what was best for the schedule,” Greenblatt continued. “It does give one pause. You’re almost damned if you and damned if you don’t. It’s tricky.”
Of course, this is a nice way of saying that NBC has enough experience in the crappy superhero genre (hello The Cape!) to know that nerds would eat it alive.
