Wonder Woman is Revived and Other Women Getting Pilot Gigs

Wonder Woman is Revived and Other Women Getting Pilot Gigs

Bob Greenblatt, the new chief at NBC, is aggressively stepping up his pilot pickups for next season and he’s hired several women writer/creators. He has also revived that recently deceased David E. Kelley version of Wonder Woman.

Other shows getting a pilot greenlight include Smash from playwright Theresa Rebeck (executive produced by Steven Spielberg) which takes place behind the scenes at a Broadway musical, and I Hate That I Love You from Jhoni Marchinko (Men in Trees, Will and Grace) described on Deadline “as a twisty single-camera romantic comedy in which a straight couple introduces two of its lesbian friends to one another and what results is both instant attraction and a pregnancy.”

USA picked up to series Necessary Roughness created by Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro. The show stars “Callie Thorne (“Rescue Me”) as a Long Island divorcee who gets a job as a therapist for a professional football team and struggles to find a balance between her personal and work lives.” (Variety)

CBS has given the pilot order to The Doctor, “executive produced and written by Rina Mimoun (Privileged), centers on a mother who reconnects with her adult children when she joins the family medical practice.” (THR)
