The pilot for the updated story of Wonder Woman was pitched to NBC as a new fall series but the network decided to take a pass on the show. Perhaps they're still hurting from the failure of "The Cape," but for the time being, the NBC camp is remaining mum on the exact reasons for not picking the show up. Rumours are focusing on the negative feedback from the fanboy community that arose after images from the set showed Adrianne Palicki as Diana in an updated outfit bereft of the more famous star-spangled booty shorts.
