CW has revealed that they are moving forward with their rendition of the classic superhero series Wonder Woman with the working title of Amazon.
We reported that the network was planning to bring Wonder Woman back to the small screen /wonder-woman-series-in-development-at-the-cw-network/in May.
They are looking for a female actress, who is in their mid-20s and 5'8″ or taller. Gilmore Girls scribe Allan Heinberg wrote the pilot script, which is described as an origin story revolving around a young amazonian woman before she turns into a warrior princess with super powers. The lead character will be named Iris.
They are casting for the role with the following description.
"She comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She's delighted and just as often horrified by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It's all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she's completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what's on her mind at all times. She's bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you're lying to her. And she doesn't have time or patience for politics or tact because she's too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see and things to learn and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere."
