Almost a decade before Pedro Pascal played the foodie Maxwell Lord in “Wonder Woman 1984”, he would have an important role in the heroine’s television series.
For those who don’t know, NBC has a ‘Wonder Woman’ series planned with Adrianne Palicki.
The idea of the series was that the world would know the Amazon warrior as Wonder Woman, while Diana Prince would be the president of a large corporation that sold heroin to fund her crime-fighting operation.
However, the idea ended up being rejected before the premiere due to bad reviews after testing the pilot episode.
During an interview with Variety, Pascal gave details about his character and said participating in the recordings was like a dream come true.
“I’ll be Detective Ed Indelicato of the Los Angeles Police Department. Ed was Diana Prince (Palicki) ‘s contact with the police, sort of an unofficial informant, you know? It was a dream come true because this series was going to change my financial and artistic situation, I think.
He went on to say that he was also very excited to be working with writer and producer David E. Kelley because he was a fan of the “Friday Night Lights” series.
“David E. Kelley’s influence on television when I was just out of college was so great, and I watched every episode of ‘Friday Night Lights’ and became a fan. I was really excited to work with him … After the show was turned down, my ground collapsed, so I looked for other jobs. I had a really bad year after that because it was hard to find a job.
Previously, Palicki admitted to Entertainment Weekly that she was deeply hurt by the ride’s cancellation.
“Honestly when I heard about the cancellation it was the scariest thing of my career because I was having a great time. Wearing this costume was a dream come true. I loved David E. Kelley’s script, he was good at making really strong women, and I found that he did it really well depending on the different personalities of Wonder Woman and Diana.
“The failure was devastating because I had high expectations. It sounded like such a promising program. I think if we had waited another year or two it would have been a success.
When asked about Gal Gadot’s version, Palicki seemed very happy with the choice.
“Gal is wonderful. It’s so good to see this character come to life because it’s important to the girls. It changed my life and I’m happy that it was experienced by an actress like her.
