is making her big television comeback courtesy of Ally McBeal
creator David E. Kelley
– and it seems she could be getting a helping hand from film director McG
TV channel NBC recently purchased Kelley’s pilot script and concept, and are looking around for a director qualified enough to bring Kelley’s vision to life on-screen.
Their current favourite is director McG, who they want to helm the show’s pivotal pilot episode – i.e. the one that establishes the identity of the show, and will hopefully get an entire season picked up.
Let’s put some light on McG biotic profile. Joseph McGinty Nichol
(1968), a.k.a. McG, is an American director and producer of film and television, plus a former record producer. His first film, Charlie’s Angels
, had the highest-grossing opening weekend for a directorial debut at the time. He has ever since launched three other films, including Terminator Salvation
, and has executive produced TV programs, such as The O.C.
, the action-packed pilot for Chuck
, and Fastlane
, both projects developed and produced by McG’s WBTV-based company, founded in 2001.
The original live-action Wonder Woman series starred Lynda Carter
and ran from 1975 to 1979 on ABC and CBS. Minka Kelly (The Roommate, Friday Night Lights
) has previously pointed out that she was in talks to star in the series. Now actress Lake Bell
(No Strings Attached
) has revealed to E! Online that she would want nothing more than to play Wonder Woman in the new show.
