star Adrianne Palicki
was able to live out one of her childhood dreams by playing Diana of Themyscira in a Wonder Woman
TV series pilot, even if the experience was all too brief. In 2011, Palicki had been tapped by NBC
to star in a Wonder Woman
TV series produced and written by David E. Kelley
. While the pilot was filmed, the network ultimately decided to pass on the series, but Palicki still thinks it could have been a hit if NBC had just waited a little longer to air the show.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly
, Adrianne Palicki opened up about her time playing Wonder Woman
for NBC, which also brought about the opportunity to work with The Princess Bride
star Cary Elwes
- her childhood crush.
"It was honestly the scariest thing ever and the best thing ever at the time. Getting to wear that outfit was just a huge dream.
