To all actresses in their early to mid-20s who are 5’8″ or taller — you may be TV’s next Wonder Woman. Warner Bros TV, the studio behind the CW is working on a drama project Amazon, and has hired casting directors Barbara Fiorentino and Danielle Aufiero to launch a search for the lead in the project in anticipation of a potential pilot pickup. A breakdown for the role has been released, providing a glimpse into the Tarzan-like fish-out-of-water premise and the central character of the Wonder Woman origin story written by Allan Heinberg that chronicles the female superhero’s life as a young Amazonian, before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers.
