Jeffrey Reiner Finalizing Deal to Direct WONDER WOMAN Pilot for NBC

     February 9, 2011


Director Jeffery Reiner is close to finalizing a deal to helm David E. Kelley’s bizarre Wonder Woman pilot for NBC. The reimagining of the comic book superhero will find Diana Prince balancing life as a corporate executive and a crime fighter (seriously). McG was in talks to direct the pilot episode but Deadline reports that thankfully he couldn’t fit it into his schedule. Reiner was a director/executive producer on Jason Katims’ astounding drama Friday Night Lights, and also helmed the pilots for Trauma and The Event, both going to series. After they shoot the pilot, NBC will take a look and decide whether or not to order to the project to series. Next stop: casting.
