Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Wonder Woman in the new David E. Kelley NBC series.  The Friday Night Lights star beat out others like Beyonce and Jennifer Love Hewitt who were also trying out for the role. 

It’s Interesting to note that Friday Night Lights Director/Producer Jeffrey Reiner will direct the new Wonder Woman pilot show.

 Palicki will reportedly fulfill Wonder Woman’s double roles as Diana Themyscira, Billionaire CEO, and Diana’s “Plain Jane” assistant, Diana Prince.  Palicki has appeared on Criminal Minds and on the short-lived series Lonestar

1970s Wonder Woman Super Star Lynda Carter has approved of the casting by tweeting “Congratulations, Adrianne!”  And… if you are missing the Wonder Woman character… They make Snuggies with her character image and curvy physique on flannel.
