TV: First look at NBC's Wonder Woman (News)

Following the news in January that NBC gave the go-ahead to a Wonder Woman pilot comes today the first released image of actress Adrianne Palicki in her full Wonder Woman glory.

The pilot has been filming this week in Los Angeles and actors Cary Elwes ("The Princess Bride") and Elizabeth Hurley ("Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me") have been cast for the show. Elwes playing the CEO of Diana's company, Themyscira Industries, and Hurley as an antagonist character running a pharmaceutical company creating a drug making users stronger.

As for the costume, it is not surprising that the show chose to stay away from the classic Wonder Woman look given that her comic book counterpart is currently wearing a different uniform as well. The NBC version does have some similarities to Diana's new comic outfit with the blue pants and the blue boots keep with the single color uniformity. The image does not give any sign if a jacket is part of the ensemble but I do think it would work if included.

The Wonder Woman TV show if picked up by NBC should premiere on the network this fall.
