Hot off the heels of this weekend’s Wonder Woman Day, we at Blog@ found an interesting article from Sci Fi TV Zone, with Deborah Joy Levine. Levine, who created the Lois and Clark television show, apparently was also contacted to create a similar Wonder Woman series.
Here is a highlight from an unearthed interview from way back when:
I guess my new take is that she is a Greek history professor, a young and very bright woman having a hard time juggling her personal life with her work. In this case, of course, her real work is being an Amazon warrior. It’s, like, “I’ll save the world, come home, pop a Lean Cuisine in the oven and watch the soap I taped this afternoon.”
Obviously, the show didn’t take off — and while I dug Lois and Clark (I was seven, give me a break), part of me doesn’t feel bad about this dropped Wondy show at all. As I’ve said to my colleagues before, Wonder Woman is — repeat, is — a good enough property to tell straight, without Sex and the City trappings. And if she was going to riff on another show, wouldn’t Diana merit the West Wing meets superheroics, instead? What do you think, Rama Readers?
