Good news for everyone who was saddened by the aborted Tara-from-Friday-Night-Lights (Adrianne Palicki) reboot of Wonder Woman on NBC: The CW has tentatively green-lighted a script about Diana of Themyscira, with the working title Amazon. And now they have a producer and a casting director as well!
And like many programs on the CW (Smallville, The Carrie Diaries) and comic book characters (Spider-Man, X-Men, Batman,) the show will be a revised origin story of the woman with the magic lasso. But can you make the cut in casting?
As giant foodies (as in, we like food), as well as people who are interested in the intricacies of real life relationships (like the ones you see on reality television contests that involve rose ceremonies) we are very excited about this new NBC show that is currently being cast.
As the casting call says, “It’s a modern-day dating show that brings together everyone’s two favorite things: food and love.” These men must cook to win a woman’s heart. A modern day fairy tale, really, because we know that a way to a man’s heart is food, but the idea that women also enjoy eating food is a relatively new concept that even some third-wave feminists refuse to accept.
Bottom line: We bet a lot of lonely food truck dudes are going to go for this one.
